In Henry Chang’s work, objects are beautifully merged in hazy yet iridescent backgrounds to visually identify his spirituality and sexuality. In Sally Han’s work, space is the primary source to explore her intuitive thoughts. Once the space is decided, she then introduced organic elements such as Nigures to question her initial decision. From a compressed interior space to an open stage, dedicate linear marks to translucent watercolor brushstrokes, and chunky wood panels to meticulous paper cutouts, the two artists both show a unique style yet create a deep conversation to each other’s work in exploring their subconscious mind and questioning their identity.
