Peter Chan

Peter Chan’s paintings focus on the quiet moments — mediation; prayer; a solitary moment. We encounter his characters immersed in a silence that’s almost palpable.

In recent series Fata Morgana, he uses light as a metaphor in support of his subjects and to enhance the drama. He employs techniques to heighten philosophical concepts about the principles and permanence of beauty and romantic love. His narratives also reveal characters in quiet and meditative moments of reflection.
