Solo Exhibition "Transformation" by Paul Chang
(6 Feb 2020 - 29 Feb 2020)

Dear friends and art lovers,

We kindly request your attention for the first large solo exhibition in Readytex Art Gallery for 2020. This exhibition of visual artist Paul Chang named Transformation, will be opening in our gallery on February 6th. The last time this artist - who has been living in Florida in the US, for many years – exhibited in Suriname, was in 2013. Now, almost seven years later, Paul Chang is once again eager to share his latest works with the art loving public in his country of birth, Suriname. And as the title of the exhibition clearly suggests, his art has indeed undergone a transformation. 

To those familiar with the work of Paul Chang, the transformation is certainly visible. But the artist himself has also gone through a bit of a transformation. In his recent works Paul Chang detaches himself from the acquirements of the academy and chooses an imagery that is much more abstract. He gives in to a liberating process of change that influences his compositions, his use of form and his colors. “Since the figurative was of no importance here, it gave me the freedom to depict my inspiration in a more natural and intuitive manner”, says the artist.  

That freedom is almost palpable in the work. Cheerful colors and organic shapes come to life on the canvas, in seemingly random compositions. Still, the artist’s characteristic signature remains recognizable. And the transformation has no influence on the effect that his work has always had on the viewer. Because regardless of your mood or mindset, the art works of Paul Chang still have the undeniable capacity to instill a small moment of cheer, of peace and positive thoughts. That is not really strange, because just like before nature is still the most important source of inspiration to the artist. And some of the freer and more abstract objects in his visual imagery - in some works more than in others – do still closely resemble elements from nature. “Because I consistently use organic shapes, there is a certain relationship with shapes found in nature”, explains the artist. The result is an exhibition containing a beautiful collection of giclée prints on canvas, each individually enhanced with acrylic paint.

The team of Readytex Art Gallery and visual artist Paul Chang, hope to welcome you at the opening of his solo exhibition Transformation on Thursday February 6th, at 7:30 pm. The exhibition is also open in the evenings of Friday February 7th and Saturday February 8th, from 7:00 – 9:00 pm. Furthermore, from Friday February 7th until Saturday February 29th, Monday – Friday from 8:00 am – 4:30 pm and on Saturdays from 8:30 am – 1:30 pm. You are very welcome!
