Statement

Ms Tsz – Kwan CHAN began work on her Chinese ink painting series in the winter of 2016. Inspired by the round cuteness of her own pet animals, she sought to capture these lively qualities with the movement of her ink brush and the colour ink wash of the images. She adapted her oil painting technique (as seen in her Aurora Revelation Collection) to this latest series depicting stylized animals in Chinese ink.

In this series the artist wished to convey her feelings ~ that all life was precious & we need to treasure life, every little bit of it. This included not abandoning or killing sick animals & not giving in to thoughts of hopelessness & suicide. It meant seeing beauty in adopting & nurturing pets.

This new collection was first shown at Ink Asia in December 2016 where her fresh contemporary ink style, received attention from the media & from established Chinese ink painters.

The collection was shown at Art Stage Singapore in January 2017 where some paintings were selected by 33 Auction Singapore for sale on 14 May 2017. Her picture ‘Rooster Family’ sold for SGD 1,600. Chinese ink painting will become TK’s new artistic focus in 2017.
