In Painting Dreams and Passion in Living Colour by Anthony Chan Sai Weng, viewers can look forward to a selection of some of Anthony’s best works over five decades. Each work reflects his standpoint as an artist and how he endeavours to capture the beauty of nature in all its forms and colours. The pieces are not painted in situ, but are reproduced through his memories, feelings, thoughts, experiences and imagination, and painted spontaneously and intuitively. The colour variation reflects the different cycles and times of the day, and also, the various moods and velocities. The moment Anthony aims to capture in each painting is one that is always in motion.
It is envisioned that visitors to the exhibition will make their own personal, spiritual and emotional associations as they observe Anthony’s work. Even when they see the same painting several times, it is hoped that they will see something different each time.
Painting Dreams and Passion in Living Colour runs from 19-24 October 2022, and is held at Menara KEN TTDI. The exhibition is a participating gallery of CIMB Artober 2022.
