Born in Sier-Luo of Yunlin Sian, Chuang decided to learn stone sculpture in juvenile, going to Hualien alone and joined “Dong-Hua Sculpture Co.” where he engaged in production. While being the apprentice there, he was greatly influence by the factory director, Wang-Hai Chen (graduated from Dept. of Fine Arts of Taiwan Normal University) who built up fundamental concepts of arts for Chuang. Besides, in 1993, as Chuang contacted Cin-Jhih Chen, the sculptor in Taiwan for many times, so that he had chance to be short-term assistant in Chen’s working studio. Taking this chance, Chuang enlarged his vision which differed from the perception of generic workers, especially not only altered his vision on concept of molding but also initiated his intense recognition of three-dimensional molding.
Initially, it was difficult for him to precisely handle materials, particularly with curving lines of naked female bodies. Though, he preferred to explore human body, he gave up because of no academic training about sketching human bodies.
Chuang considered the theme of animals; therefore, he thought of familiar buffalo since he got known in childhood. On the way of one journey to Yian-Liao, he saw a flock of buffalos, he began to explore and to sculpture them. He studied and imitated renown sculptors who also chose theme buffalos, Tu-Shuei Huang, Sia-Yu Chen and early Yuyu Yang.
The style of his buffalo series could be ranged from his former realistic exhibition to the later gradual intention of abstract molding. His motivation turns to pursue structure, dynamics, proportion, lines, simplicity, and so on; his words of sculpture has been re-written and replaced his original attempt. In the process of his creation, the most unforgettable experience is to work diligently and to enjoy whole process. Chuang, the creator of buffalo series, applies his “returning” theory, theorizes own experience, re-constructs and builds up systems as well as undergoes a stable qualitative change—that is fully exhibited from his current creations.
