John Chang

Mixed Media

John Chang dreams in many worlds and brings back remnants. In his new works, people come and go; yet no one is seen. The migrators leave their shadows in the air and their marks on the sidewalks. Their words and echoes float through storms of sharp, black fragments flying in all directions. Chang’s East/West identity enriches his memory and brings flashbacks from lives lived in many places.
