Exhibition details

12 April, 2016
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Closing / End Date:

Event Category:

Known for a bold, strident style and a subdued, wistful palette, Tan’s most recent series, “Theatre of the Contained” depicts roughly hewn scenery, whether interior or exterior, juxtaposed with many a carefully placed animal and scattered with bright highlights that articulate Tan’s dimensional structures. Exploring the notion of the “box” vis-a-vis his experiences in Taipei’s city setting and in his drastically different rural abode, Tan composes visually and compositionally stimulating images which he couches within yet another image that is in turn “boxed” by the rectangularity of the canvas. While creating a rich spatial interaction, Tan represents and literalizes his theorizations into the pre-packaged and hypocritical reality of urban life.
