The Artist Room and Simon Lee Gallery are delighted to announce a collaborative solo exhibition of new paintings by Kristy M Chan (b. 1997, Hong Kong). On view from 12 October – 12 November 2022, Binge will take place across both galleries’ locations.
Born in Hong Kong and now living in London, Kristy M Chan’s practice looks at the ways in which environments shape one’s identity. Previous series of work have seen the artist explore feelings of disorientation whilst existing between Eastern and Western cultures through kaleidoscopic colour fields and indistinct figures. Created this summer in London, the paintings in Binge mark a jump in Chan’s practice from the semi-figurative to total abstraction, taking as their point of departure the culture of superfluity and excess that characterises contemporary urban life and behaviour.
