"Paper Money is a series of large oil paintings that depict a type of yellow paper money burned in traditional Chinese culture as a ritual offering to heaven and a medium to communicate with gods or underworld spirits. Stacked in tall, almost unwieldy piles, the depicted money becomes a meditation on the nature of paper itself—its prevalence, its tactile qualities, and personal associations.  Pang refers to this style of painting as Abstract Realism. His intention is an artistic exploration of the possibility of distilling abstract qualities from objects, thus allowing for a personalized approach in the construction of meaning."
Caroline Brooks, assistant director, Roswell Museum and Art Center.
