Peter Hong-Tsun Chan's latest body of work, Opening Sequence, invites us to question the true representation of reality through an added dimensional plane. His oil paintings juxtapose reality and fantasy, lending social and artistic commentary on our tendency to embody different identities, and to peer into other worlds through digital screens.


For this solo exhibition the artist has created a body of work composed of ceramic sculptures. The pieces serve as a curated collection of memories, each crafted to visually represent a bookmark for that specific time. These works are ornamented with a range of motifs that span from gentle city night scapes to explosive firework designs, giving a sense of nostalgia to midsummer Americana. Similar to a cabinet of curiosity, these objects have staked their place in this collection for both sentimental and aesthetic purposes. Allowing those memories to exist and generously inviting the viewers to experience them.
