PETER CHANG Obit Nov 2017 The Herald

 
Peter Chang was the Faberge of the 21st century. His jewellery creations were unorthodox, outlandish, outrageous, extravagant, witty, sexy, and off the wall. Once seen, never forgotten. High voltage colour was his trademark. These objects d'art were large, flamboyant, stylish, post-modern. Meanwhile Chang himself was quiet, always unobtrusive, a hard working, shy genius whose smaller pieces took 400 hours to make.  
He came be called 'the Scottish jewellery artist' because he lived here for 30 years, but in fact arrived in Glasgow in 1987 when his wife, Barbara Santos-Shaw was appointed head of Printed Textiles at Glasgow School of Art. He met his wife at a party in 1968. They were together nearly 50 years, and married in 1998. It was a very happy and creative partnership,  "He was witty, kind, gentle. It was truely wonderful - given a few bickerings!" she says. 
Already well known, soon his studio workshop in their southside home was a beacon for museum curators and collectors worldwide. 
 His unique visual language came from his imagination. Part Chinese but British born, his oriental ancestry is evident in his innate love of decoration and pattern, and his handling of exuberant colour and exotic shape. Chang trained as both sculptor and printmaker,. After a first degree in Art and Graphic Design at Liverpool 1963-66, he left for Paris to study printmaking at the famous Hayter Printmaking Atelier, followed by a postgraduate in sculpture and printmaking at The Slade, University College, London. It was all a far cry from his modest, even humble beginnings. Only after years working on sculptural projects, interiors and furniture design, did he turn to jewellery in the late 1970s, first making earrings for his wife. 
As a top rank international artist, Chang's work is in the collection of museums in Germany, Australia, the Netherlands, China, Hawaii, Finland, Switzerland, Italy, in New York's Metropolitan, the Smithsonian, Musee des Arts Decoratifs Montreal, Graves Art Gallery Sheffield, British Council, National Museum of Scotland and numerous private collections, especially in America. He was the winner of many awards: 1989 1st prize Scottish Gold Award, 1991 Merseycraft 1st Prize, 2003 Hoffman Preism Munich, but the one that really put him in the spotlight was the 1995 Jerwood Prize for "lasting significance and daring brilliance." 
 Ironically the day after his death last week art transporters collected work to ship to Rome where his show will open 14th November at the Museo Nazionale delle Arti del XX1 Secolo. Recent exhibitions have been at the Musée d'Art Moderne, Paris and in Germany at the Schmuckmuseum Pforzheim, yet as is the case for so many artists, Glasgow and Edinburgh failed to appreciate his gifts.  
Mention jewellery, the majority think of gold or diamonds. Chang's raw materials are rather different: commonplace plastic off cuts, worn toothbrushes, old felt-tip pens, broken rulers, razors - anything acrylic. In the 1970s living in his home town of Liverpool, much of it was obtained from shops in Liverpool’s Chinatown. Red and yellow were popular colours in that community, and this colour combination often features in his work. From these unlikely beginnings, as if by magic, he created reptilian bracelets, mosaic broaches, cloisonne earrings and baroque mirrors of exquisite beauty.  
Chang used plastic because he wanted something that would reflect the age we live in, and additionally was throwaway. Wood or silver impose their own character. Plastic is anonymous and could be moulded, modeled, sculpted into surreal objects of Medici splendor, Tiffany elegance or crazy frivolity. Chang saw himself as primarily a visual artist who sought to create a synthesis between sculpture and wearable jewellery, but fantasy was always important. Star wars with a dash of mythological beast, lizard skin with leopard spots. 'Object-making is a non-verbal attempt at balancing the intellect with the intuitive,' he explained.    
 I watched Chang’s work for 30 years, visited his studio many times and saw his work develop in complexity and sophistication. Recent work demonstrated a shift to more rigorous, minimal forms, with sculpture again coming to the fore. 
Chang's material may have been modern, his creations avant garde, but his skills were ancient, painstaking and time consuming. Transforming tiny fragments of brightly coloured acrylic into intricate, immaculate curved brooches or bangles, their surfaces reminiscent of amorphous marine life with the odd fin, horn or pompom, is long, hard, and, it transpired, dangerous work. 
He never used much in the way of machinery, believing he had more control with the hand, using planes, rasps, needle files, sandpaper and polish.  However his technique of building up layers of resin and, over the years, before masks were common, breathing in the fumes, did badly damage his lungs, a tragic price for such fabulous work.   

Like all fine art, Peter Chang's work provokes an intense physical response: a compulsion to touch, a need to smile and wonder. His unique objects also project an unusual wit and humour. "I like to incorporate a bit of fun: spice it up. People take things too seriously" he once told me. So in the end this deep-thinking man, modest, often silent, leaves us with upbeat works of a cheeky joyous optimism that is rare indeed.

  4. I'm so happy to share this with you that can read / see this now. When I started trading binary and forex a few months ago, I really didn't have the necessary tools to trade and I lost a lot until I met Pablo Martinez who taught me all about market psychology as he managed my account for me. Today I am grateful to him for his great offer and help because it really changed my financial situation with an investment capital of $1500 and now I'm earning around $35,500 - $30,000 profits per week.

  5. <i stumbled across your site by accident (i think following a link trail from someone else's site) and i wanted to let you know how much joy and nostalgia this gave me, I just want to say Bitcoin has bounced back and is currently trading slightly above $17,000 support zone against the US Dollar and the bulls are so much in charge to see BTC to $50,,000 and ahead. Its still a great time to day trade with the little you hold and its not still late to buy little BTC and grow your portfolio as i have been doing with Mr Bernie Doran for the past 6 weeks now and i came to understand that you can make profit from the market at anytime and its even profitable when BTC is bullishing so your portfolio can grow too. His signals are so accurate and yields lots of profits, using his signals has made me 5.34 BTC with my initial 0.7 BTC which you all traders/investors will see is profitable. This is the most beneficial means of trading as experienced, you can reach out to Mr Bernie through Gmail : bernie.doranfx01@gmail.com or telegram : bernie_fx for more inquiries

  6. CYBER GENIE INTERCONTINENTAL is a great company and we need more genuine hackers and software programmers like them in this world, they were able to unlock an old crypto wallet account that I thought I couldn't ever access. They were very helpful and extremely patient with me, even after they were able to access it, they never took a dime from thousands of euros Bitcoin in it. I highly recommend them to everyone.

  12. I recently found myself hiring a Crypto-Recovery programmer. I am more than impressed. I learned more about the tech and cyber world, and that anything is possible with the right programmer. If you have been a victim of Bitcoin or another Cryptocurrency scam, I feel like it's my duty to link you all with a legit programmer. I started having a lot of issues with an investment company that goes by the name DRIP FX when I tried withdrawing the 307,955 USD I had invested with them. The so-called Bit miners couldn't provide any help for me to access my funds. I did all investment deposits via various Crypto-Coins which is untraceable but I didn’t give up on retrieving my funds back. Luckily for me with the help of Cyber Genie Comp, I was able to recover my funds. I salute their cyber skills. Ever find yourself requiring the help of a programmer, please contact:

  14. Hey there, I just want to testify of the wonders of a Crypto Recovery Wizard ( Cybergenie(@)cyberservices(.)com ). I was going on the net as always with the little time I get during my lunch break time being a nurse. A pop-up ad came on my screen which then clicked, it was about Cryptocurrency mining and investment schemes. I read through the ad, it was really convincing as I read multiple reviews from people who had benefited massively from this Crypto scheme. I got interested in it, it was fast, easy, and won't affect my job. My first investment was $2,020.00 BTC which generated a profit of $28,000.00. They always asked me to invest to get to a certain level so I could access my investments till I had invested all I had and was borrowing. I had already invested $ 88,000.00 USDT in total and still wasn't able to withdraw a penny from my investments or profits. I got bored of everything, told them I am no longer interested, and that's the last I heard from them. I was really scared as I thought I had lost my money. I was referred by my co-worker to this programmer, his terms for recovering my lost BTC were conducive and I quickly engaged his services to help me retrieve my BTC. This guy retrieved my lost $88,000.00 totaled without any hassle.

  15. I'm here to express my utmost gratitude for SPYHOST CYBER SERVICE. One subject of concern to worry about is who to trust with personal information and money in a world full of evil and deceits. For me, SPYHOST CYBER SERVICE came through. I pledged to publicize their service to the world. I made a large BTC investment with an improper profile and was unable to withdraw my money. I could no longer withdraw and my life became unpleasant. I could only see my proper balance. After reading so many positive reviews about SPYHOST CYBER SERVICE, I made the decision to give them a try to see if they could recover my BTC. To my surprise, they successfully did it, and I am completely delighted. Kindly update SPYHOST CYBER SERVICE if you find yourself in a similar predicament to get your money back: (Spyhost@cyberdude .com)
