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.
