OBVERSE PAINTINGS

by Fred Chuang




KACHINA
7" x 14"

This is a small fragment from a damaged painting, Tattoo I, which was cracked when I accidentally banged it against a railing, before it was safely mounted.  Every accident is an opportunity, though, and this small sector of the larger composition takes on its own life in separation.  I named it Kachina after the color aesthetic and the "spiritual" energy.
