The works of Cheng Chien-Chang are centered around the theme of “land,” which refers to not only the native land of the living but also the Land Deities, guardians in Heluo language. Cheng’s concern and sentiment for the land include environmental considerations as well as historical and cultural reflections, which further refer to social and political critique. However, Cheng’s works always contain simple, mild, and constrained methods, qualities which reflect that artist’s temperament, determination, and persistence without exaggeration and deafening exhaustion.
