Sim Chan

Sim Chan graduated from the Hong Kong Art School in 2008 studying painting. He explores perception, light, and colour through the representation of oil paintings with landscapes. Sim is trying to maximize the possibilities of using light in relationship to the colours. Simply the lighting affects what colours we see visually, while colours are the basis of paintings. Through his experiments on colours and light, he customized a self-illuminated device behind the canvas providing a light source. Once the light comes through from the back of the canvas, it changes the traditional colour knowledge of the paintings, which become completely different from what we normally see in the daylight. Capable of penetrating many layers of colours on the canvas, illumination from the canvas back leaves the conventional training of applying colours no longer practical. Sim takes the opportunity to tour the audience with a very unique experience exploring his paintings in daylight and in the dark.
