Zue Chan

Zue Chan graduated from Stage Production and Scenery at the Hong Kong Academy for Performing Arts (HKAPA) and received a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts (Honours) majoring in Theatre and Entertainment Arts. In 2016, Chan learnt from Lien Jui-Fen to further develop her contemporary ink painting techniques and completed the ink painting diploma from the School of Continuing Education of the Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2020. Chan’s early works "Unconstrained" series used the traditional texturing method in Chinese painting to depict the veins of mountains and rocks and Western oil painting techniques such as wiping to embody the layers of the cloud sea. With the comfort of the mountain and the leisurely cloud, creating a peaceful, restful space apart from reality and established a unique creative style of herself. Chan likes to combine Chinese Brush Painting and Western painting techniques. Her artworks not only retain the characteristics of traditional Chinese painting such as cavalier perspective and the texturing method but also break the material barrier, cross-using both Chinese and Western pigments in one artwork. She keeps the beauty of traditional techniques while presenting them in a novel way. There’s a beautiful message in her paintings: all things in the world can coexist peacefully. It’s a perfect balance of universal harmony. The theme of Chan's paintings is mostly landscapes. For Chan, nature is extraordinary. Nature is a flow of energy, the breath of life, and a positive magnetic field of mindfulness that helps to reset mind. Especially the mountains and the fields. They exude an aura of peace and ease. Mountains and fields have the energy to gently soothe the hustle and bustle of the city. Chan’s creative process is arbitrary, every moment is unpredictable, just like nature. And similar to nature, people's state of mind is also ever-changing and full of mysteries. Chan regards the process of creation as a bridge to link the mind and the artwork. She merges her mind with the paintbrush to make herself and the painting become one. In this process, she also heals herself through the mountains and rivers, learning to accept the ups and downs of life, and conducts self-exploration journeys one after another in the artistic world.
