When Kevin Chin started this series, he was thinking about how our purportedly globally interconnected world can at times be isolating, and how we find solace in our increasingly urban life. As the series developed, the introduction of social distancing brought new significance.
Chin’s signature mastery of colour conveys the cheerfulness in making the best of testing circumstances. He finds a sublime stillness, to capture the complex mood of this time. The quiet optimism of these paintings is disarming. They mark this unique time in world events, a heartening reminder that distance is merely a state of mind.
The gallery is open and adhering to social distancing measures.
The exhibition can also be viewed online. View exhibition here.
