About the Event

Chan’s paintings in Tease present a fascinating and forgotten definition of the softness of womanhood that fuses with feminine mystique. Perfume and flowers, of course has had a long association with all that is feminine – with seduction, the privacy of the toilette and the intimacy of lovers, as well as with personal, womanly experiences of intuition, memory and tenderness. In that context, the conjunction of floral fragrance and the female form in Chan’s paintings seems to promote a traditional ideology of classic femininity in which women are associated with love-making and domesticity rather than the wage-earning of the burgeoning body of financially independent and career-minded women. The diptychs, with contrasting soft- tinted lighting caressing the blossomed halves, juxtaposed with a shadowed panel cues the artist’s presentation of the underlying dilemmas of the modern female.
