We are pleased to present “The Mortal World • The Destination - Solo Exhibition of Yahon Chang” starting on the 13th of May until the 29th of May at National Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall in Taiwan, curated by new generation Chinese curator Lan Qingwei, displaying nearly 30 paintings from the new series of the “Mortal World” and the “Destination”. These paintings portray a particular state of mind that draws from his life, entails his rejections, struggles, acceptance and love in this world. Two of the exhibiting paintings from the “Destination” series will be donated for charity sale, to raise funds for building a new matrimonial church for Danshui’s TamKang Church. Furthermore, ten more paintings will be donated for charity fund raising for Joy of Life and Care Association and The House of Dreams Youth Development Association. These funds will help low-income families, the impoverished elderly and youth that desperately need the care, medical, resources and professional training to help equip them to regain their self-esteem and survival skills in society.
Yahon Chang was born in 1948, lives and works in Taiwan and graduated from the Taipei National University of the Arts (previously knows as National Art College) in 1977. It is not until the death of his beloved wife in 2000 that he began to re-immerse himself in painting and started a new chapter in his artistic creation. There is a certain mysterious quality to Yahon’s painting, one that cements a state of serenity within the viewer, as if you could see through the painting into a flux of time – that is neither past nor future, but rather in a state of eternal existence.
