Like much of the artist’s oeuvre, the artwork, an extension of Chuang Che’s forte is the coalescence of Abstract Expressionism and Chinese traditions, with blocks of white and bright yellow offset by fluid black strokes reminiscent of landscape screen paintings. One can discern that the textured, large-format abstractions are the hallmark of Chuang’s works who has stressed that his objective is to bring together Western and Eastern artistic sensibilities. The artwork, ’Landscape No.1, 1970’ was featured in the Forsythe Gallery in Ann Arbor, Michigan and was then sold on behalf of The American Red Cross in Greater New York through Sotheby’s New York in 2006.
