IN THE GALLERY: Worlds Aside

Kevin Chin

4 - 28 May 2016

Worlds Aside will be on display at THIS IS NO FANTASY + dianne tanzer gallery from 4 – 28 May 2016. This solo exhibition of large-scale oil paintings is inspired by Magic Realist literature, where the world is re-envisioned from the perspective of the cultural ‘other.’ Drawing from migrant and travel experiences, Chin’s colourful assemblages create impossible places we may long to be. This is a search for a home away from home. Landscapes collide and cultural cues coalesce, as Chin turns the everyday into extraordinary scenes.
