Here's a little insight into the creative process and the inspiration behind the work of Catherine Chang.
Catherine Lucky Chang is an interdisciplinary artist and yoga teacher living and working in California. Born in Atlanta, Georgia, she received her BS from Skidmore College and her MFA in Painting & Drawing from the University of Georgia.
Chang’s work directs qi towards inner peace, love, and gratitude through a combination of formal elements and material choices. In her recent work, she combines papermaking, natural dyeing, printmaking, drawing, book arts, and collage. Through integration of meditation in daily life, she uses intuitive, abstract marks that balance positive and negative space to evoke spontaneity, naturalness, and vitality.
She has exhibited her work in solo and group exhibitions in New York and Georgia and abroad in Florence, Cortona, and Crete. Her work has been shown at institutions such as the The Georgia Museum of Art, Whitespace Gallery, Rainforest Art Foundation, Madison Museum of Fine Art, and Hathaway Gallery. Chang recently attended international artist residencies at Mudhouse in Greece and Mauser Ecohouse in Costa Rica. She is also thrilled to have most recently joined Tappan Collective.
"My intention is to share my personal journey while sparking the viewer’s own connection to the joy of life that can be found through observation and the flow of the moment."
