Obverse Paintings by Fred Chuang


Au-gel (2006).

Resuming my mixed-media, collage work, and experimenting with gold-on-gold effects, this small painting incorporates the figure, printed on tissue paper with “printed” bird wings. The textural effects in the wings suggests a more “butterfly” metaphor, but the texture of the feathers can be more clearly seen in the actual work.

More of Fred Chuang’s obverse angels (and other beings) here.

  1. I think these probably look better in real life as well since he’s used gold paint. That kind of effect is always lost viewing things secondhand.
