FEATURED ARTISTS AT THE 8TH EDITION OF THE ASIA CONTEMPORARY ART SHOW
T.K. CHAN – HONG KONG
Hong Kong-born artist T.K. Chan has been painting Scotland through her eyes since her time as a student at Edinburgh’s Napier University, where she graduated in 2008 with a Masters Degree in Interdisciplinary Design. Her new creative oil painting series that will be shown at the 8th edition of the Asia Contemporary Art Show is called “Aurora Revelation,” and is inspired by the mysteriously beautiful but volatile aurora borealis, which can be seen in the north of Scotland. The aurora borealis used to be seen only in the northern hemisphere, known as the “northern lights,” but can now be seen in different locations across Europe and the USA, thought to be linked to global warming. The artist has used this series of paintings to bring an awareness of global warming.
The “Aurora Revelation” are circular artworks, which represent the Earth, Sun, Stars and the relationship of human solidarity. Each brushstroke is created using a unique circular motion. These numerous small circles, depicted on a circular canvas, act as metaphors that appeal to everyone to join together to protect our mother earth in harmony. T.K Chan is represent at the Show by BLINK Gallery, Hong Kong, Room 4121.
T.K. CHAN – 香港
土生土长的香港艺术家T.K. Chan于2008年在爱丁堡龙比亚大学(Edinburgh’s Napier University)取得跨学科设计硕士学位，在学期间，她就开始以画笔记下眼中的苏格兰。她将会于第八届亚洲当代艺术展展出其充满创意的油画系列 Aurora Revelation ，作品灵感来自苏格兰北部、神秘美丽却又难以捕捉的极光。极光以前只出现在北半球，所以称之为“北极光”，但因全球暖化效应，现时在欧洲及美国不同地区都可以看到极光，艺术家希望透过一系列作品，唤醒人类对全球暖化的关注。
Aurora Revelation系列的作品全部呈圆形状，代表地球、太阳、繁星与人类应为一体。画布上的每一笔触都呈现独特的圆形图案，而这些无数小圈隐喻人类应携手保护地球，T.K. Chan将代表BLINK Gallery参与展览。BLINK Gallery, 香港, 房间 4121
