Twinkling City, Sim Chan’s latest solo exhibition, shows his new series of work on the exploration of perception, light and color through the representation of landscapes. Window is one of his favorite elements appearing often in Sim’s work throughout his artistic career over a decade. While light is another major subject he has been experimenting and developing in this new series of work over past two years. With researches, studies and tests on colors and light, Sim is committed to exploring how light affects the colors we see in a painting.

Born in Hong Kong, Sim Chan, graduated from the Hong Kong Art School in 2008 studying painting. He has participated in numerous exhibitions including in Hong Kong, Beijing, Taipei, Tokyo, London, Zurich, etc. He was invited to the 15th Venice Biennale International Architecture Exhibition “Stratagems in Architecture” in 2016.  He was selected to create a public art installation and paintings at the Queen Elizabeth Stadium in 2014, awarded the “40under40” global creative talent by Perspective Magazine in 2013 and was commissioned to create a public art installation at the Hong Kong Arts Centre in the same year.

閃爍的城市:陳閃個展

我們很榮幸為您呈獻陳閃的最新個展「閃爍的城市」,一系列藉風景為題的新作品,對視覺感知,光線和色彩進行探索。

窗戶是陳閃的常用詞彙,十多年的創作生涯中窗戶頻頻出現在他的作品裡。過去兩年間他也不斷嘗試新的創作,而這一新系列的另一重要元素便是光。通過對顏色、光線作研究,學習和實驗,陳氏熱衷地探討光線如何影響畫作中呈現出來的色彩。

透過作品中無窮無盡的窗戶,我們可以想像在大都市中的荒誕生活,人們被擠在一個極其壓縮的空間中。另一方面,窺視一扇扇窗戶又可以帶來無盡的想法和可能性。無論是常見的方形油畫、多角形的畫布、室內裝置、又或者建築外牆的壁畫,陳氏不斷研究刻劃窗戶的各種藝術形式和方法。窗戶像是解開背後故事的鑰匙,藉此通往窗戶內外的想像空間,讓人不禁想到:甚麼將會出現在那窗的另一端呢?
