Harmony and dynamism duel for attention throughout the interwoven colours executed in short and long swaths of oil paint in this exhibition. The perfection of Jun Chen‘s placement and tonal understanding—combined with the clarity of colour give strength to his unbroken vision of the world of contemplation.
At its heart, the paintings in Bloom remind us to recognise what we have in this world and the beauty that abounds. Chen does not set out to change the world, but through his deep understanding of it, he just might do that. His goal is to create quiet moments that allow us to rest our mind and take the time to enjoy the experience. Ultimately, it is through this process that we replenish our collective soul.
The gallery is open and practicing COVID-19 social distancing measures.
The exhibition can also be viewed online. View exhibition here.
