Artist's Statement of Rodney Chang


for "Computer Art Show" at Royal Culture Art Gallery, 1986


Twenty years of making art precedes my entry into the computer graphics arena. My first hands on experience on the machine dispelled prior long held fears that someday the computer might just replace the artist. Instead I now find that it's a great ally to take care of a lot of tedious "craftsmanship" chores that consume so much of a working artist's creative time. With the computer I can now focus more on the experimentation of aesthetic IDEAS and their transformation into shapes and forms for other to experience and share. I am about a year away from producing computer assisted fine arts murals, sculpture and, believe it or not, WATERCOLOR print editions of museum quality for the fine arts market.
