Hanart TZ Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of Painting at 90, a solo exhibition of works by Hong Kong master Gaylord Chan, on Friday, 21 July 2017. The exhibition will run through 2nd September.

The exhibition will feature a range of Gaylord Chan’s works from the late 1980s to his latest pieces, including his earlier oil paintings to his latest ‘computer paintings’ and ‘laser-cut-wood-paintings’.

His series of works show his ready wit and earthy happiness by keeping alive a search for arcane refinements in the profession of painting. The concern for movement in form, emotion in colour combination, spatial balance and depth of field, are both underscored and overlayed by Chan’s passion and sense of humour.

Each painting represents a spontaneous beat from his heart. He paints what he feels. He lets his heart guide his hand. And each of Chan’s colours is weighted for an exact level of intensity and value to express vibration, tension, light, space, and energy. He has a rare gift for harmony, although it is not harmony in the conventional sense, the painting always holds together as a powerful visual entity.

As Chan grew older and was no longer able to stand for long periods to paint, he began to make art on the computer. His successes in digital prints introduced him to a new future where he could mine his psyche for new narrative challenges, merging dreams and philosophies, fantastical and surreal imaginings, and playing with a unique range of colours not available to him in paint.
