Like windows to the world, each painting tells of a different story that seems all too familiar in our minds. Journeying from the minimalist Bonsai gardens of Japan, to the manic fervour of the Balines Kecak Dance, as well as the triumphant Roman and Greek edifices of antiquity and many more, these paintings allow one to travel through centuries in fluid undulating colour.
These semi-abstract works delve into ideas of the Surreal and the Abstract. The sensuous illusion of our subconscious is piqued. Momentarily transporting us on an imaginative and whimsical adventure.
From the grandeur of the old world to the impressive modern icons, from the rugged urban terrain to the more exotic hidden escapes, Anthony Chan Sai Weng makes each and every pictorial imagery steeped in history bringing about important cultural traditions and experiences.
It is with great pleasure that NN Gallery presents this latest series entitled Portals; by Anthony Chan. It is an opportunity to witness Anthony Chan's new stylistic approach as well as an opportunity to embark in a journey of discovery into our subconscious. Let us all dream a little.
