CHAN Hip-yan

The ingenious Avant-garde

“Covering the favourite magazines with subtle brushstrokes shows one’s own perception and reveals a different story.”

Hip-yan has explored various art medium and different styles for her two-dimensional creation. In her sketches and under her delicate brush strokes, lines running from different directions cross each other. It is really her unique style. Images on the magazines, covered/re-create with sharp and contrasting solid colours, become a story re-interpreted by her.

The process not only reflects her independent thinking, but also her study of the works. She chooses the magazine pages in a self-directed manner. She reads the visual images and selects which materials and colors to paint, then decides what and how to cover/re-create. When she keeps an individual object or the outline of a figure intact, it is intriguing. An atmosphere of mystery and stillness is created by the dense lines and rough texture.


Till now, she keeps exploring possibilities in her works by this unique way of creation, such as choosing publication materials in different sizes and textures. Recently, she has even created a "hang-in-the-air" painting method. The translucent feature of paper under the light allows her to cover/re-create the image projected on the back of the paper.
