Beyond - Peggy Chan Solo Exhibition

Lucie Chang Fine Arts is pleased to present the solo exhibition, ‘Beyond: Peggy Chan’, cyanotype and mixed media artworks by Peggy Chan.

 

The Chinese saying of ‘There are skies above skies, and mountains beyond mountains’ is a statement of modesty as it is of lament, proclaiming the vastness of the universe and all its possibilities that our limited minds cannot truly understand. Peggy Chan’s cyanotype creations capture sunlight and chase after the time. Using the sun and time as its latitude and longitude, her work chronicles an age of rapid changes that is speeding by on the highway of city life. All works are set on a circular canvas, the exhibits are set against a natural landscape dotted with the figurative elements of clouds, stars, small creatures and cities to create the whimsical world of the artist’s imagination.

 

Named for its rich cyan-blue hue, cyanotype is a photographic printing process invented in the 19th century whereby cyanotype sensitized paper is exposed to sunlight. The variables of material, sunlight intensity, temperature and humidity, length of exposure all combine to affect the finished result. The artist has no complete control of the resulting impression and it’s all about waiting with patience. The uncertain nature of creative process gives the artist a breathing space within the overcrowded city. Boundless like ‘skies above skies’, the ever-changing cityscapes are a transcendental force beyond human control and prediction. ‘Beyond’ is the artist’s invitation to tune in and contemplate daily wonders around us.
