Stella Chang is an artist and the founder of ModaRévisé Creative Studio. One of her goals in the creation of this studio was to become a visual artist with focus in the “mind.”
Artistic statement – focusing on the “mind”
The human mind fascinates me because of the many ways it can respond to human conditions. I am driven to delve into the complexities of emotion and cognitive function to investigate the mental landscape. Between the delicate balance of striving for a healthy mind and fearing to only have a diseased one, I am at once excited by what I might learn, as much as I am terrified by what I might reveal. Though the impetus for my work is deeply personal, I invite viewers to explore and consider the workings of their own mental landscapes.
Stella creates conceptual and mixed media prints in limited edition, mixed media installation, narrative illustrations (Children’s Book and Movie concept art). Highlighted here is her Dukkha Series. Dukkha, or Sanskirt for suffering and pain, is a conceptual mixed media series that explores this deeply personal yet universal human condition. Her objectives were to visually explore various reactions elicited by Dukkha, be it mental, emotional, or the physical, all the while conditioned by social, cultural, gender, and other forms of moral construct we are subjected to.
