05 Mar - 31 Mar 2023
Yrellag Gallery and Comme Chan Studio are honored to present Comme Chan's solo exhibition Part I – ‘Nourishing Gratitudes’ during the Grains Rain ("Gu Yu": 穀雨).
The Grains Rain ("Gu Yu": 穀雨) is one of the twenty-four solar periods of the Chinese calendar, which heralds the blossoming of all flowers and green plants that, together with the sun, form the protective shield for our soils. Chan hopes that the beauty shared in this exhibition shed light on ideals, wishes, and aesthetics ---to nourish our soul to live courageously and to be grateful and comforted by the endless journey of appreciation.
This exhibition features Chan's realistic-style oil paintings and is also the prelude of Chan's solo exhibition at the Hong Kong Visual Arts Center this May. Paintings presented in this exhibition Part I – ‘Nourishing Gratitudes’ are reflective practice that remind the artist of inspirational lessons from her memories and sentimental experiences in life.
Chan believes that art is a process of storytelling, and that each person has their own story. To Chan, painting is a therapeutic process that reflected her sentiments living through the death of her husband and raising her daughter alone.
Under Chan's observation of her life experience, integrating light and shadow in her paintings with the natural landscape and still life objects, the artist's heart and mind resonates in her works, and the shadows in the paintings are also a way to see beauty with depth and foil.
The observation of the here and now encompasses the harshness of loss, the happiness of giving, the excitement of the unknown, the sweetness of kindness - encounters sealed not only by pain, but the warmth of tenderness also fulfilled in the latest moments of Chan's life.
The exhibition will run from 5 March to 31 March. An opening reception will be held at the gallery on 10 March from 5pm to 8pm. The artist will be present at the opening. An artist sharing session and live music performance will be held on 25 March from 5pm to 9pm.
