Fanny Chan investigates the constrast and interchange between static volume and dynamic voice spaces.

I take the idea of geometric void/volume space of architecture as a starting point of my practice. The contrast and interchange between static volume space and dynamic void space are revealed as I apply paint in different speeds and different ways. In my work, line is employed to explore the process of mark-making on flat surface and at the same time to create a pictorial, illusory depth. It also exists in a time-based framework and suggests a sense of movement. The lines could be viewed in 2 ways- arm movements of the artist; or as if they were paths or a traces of humans’ movements in void spaces. They look humanized, half-controlled and half-loose, a bit random but partly constructed.

Fanny Chan studied a Bachelor of Art (Fine Art) at the Slade School of Fine Art.
