Keep your eyes on that light amidst the unknown, knowing that one day when the fog is cleared, you will find yourself in the garden, surrounded by grace.

—Thomas Ngan


3812 Gallery Hong Kong is pleased to present “We Dream for that Light, the Hong Kong young artist Thomas Ngan’s (b. 1995) first solo exhibition in 3812 Gallery. The exhibition showcases a beautiful selection of Ngan’s latest works under the core themes of Floral, Fragility of Life, and Light. Specialised in incorporating realism into a dreamy world, Ngan creates distinct realms that invite audiences to follow the light and explore infinite possibilities. “We Dream for that Lightopens on 15 November 2023 and runs through 5 January 2024, an opening reception will be held on 14 November 2023 from 6 to 8 pm.


We Dream for that Light is derived from the concepts of uncertainty and hope. The artist attempts to capture the truth that lies between the fog and the motif with his vibrant brushstroke and harmonious composition. Audiences can step into a mystic world of possibility, savouring the moment when the light guides us to a fascinating garden surrounded by grace.


For Ngan, life is an endless series of decisions until it ends, consisting of infinite paths of the unknown clouded in fog. It is probably because of his ever-changing cross-nation life experience, everything is in turbulence yet with infinite possibilities – the unknown is the necessity for hope. It becomes a key theme in Ngan’s works where he follows the “light” to construct a world of mystery.


Thomas Ngan was born in 1995 in Toronto, Canada, and later returned to Hong Kong with his family. During Ngan’ stays in England, France, Spain, and America where he visited dozens of cities and their museums, he was astonished by the masterpieces of the naturalism painters, realism painters of the late Victorian period, as well as the spontaneous yet abstract expressions that the impressionist and post-impressionist employed. Seeing the masterworks in person confirms and grounds his understanding of paintings as well as inspiring them. His style has since then increasingly embraced the duality of both realism and abstraction.


We are thrilled to invite you to 3812 Gallery Hong Kong where Thomas Ngan’s world of possibility unfolds, to enjoy the beauty of light brought by the vivid depiction of bouquets and fairy-like figures in a misty setting.
