Narrative Paintings is the first individual collection of Warren Chang s fine art. Chang portrays the human condition in his paintings, often depicting the downtrodden and disenfranchised while at the same time celebrating the human spirit. He is perhaps best known for interiors and genre scenes depicting the fieldworkers of Monterey County in California, where he grew up. Additional paintings in this collection offer scenes from life, landscapes, interiors and an engaging series of self-portraits. Chang s written commentary accompanies many pieces, providing a personal approach that complements his skill at painting and utilizes the techniques he developed during fourteen years of teaching drawing and painting. His talent as a teacher is further demonstrated through sketches and step-by-step procedures.
