In many of Chang’s works, the faces of his subjects are not seen. Rather, in beautiful, serene compositions he focuses with telling details. In this instance, it’s a vendor with weathered hands clad in yellow-hued sarong and a turquoise top selling red chillies and bananas. From Chang’s artistic perspective, the audience can have more space to think or feel after viewing the painting from a pair of hands or feet. This is unlike a painting with faces, where the audience will tend to seek to more or less know from the expression of the people in the painting.
