TK Chan 陳紫君
<Aurora Revelation>, by applying scientific knowledge in creative arts, Ms TK Chan is calling for solidarity around concerns about global warming. Her new creative oil painting series is called <Aurora Revelation>. It is inspired by the mysteriously beautiful but volatile Aurora Borealis, which can be seen in the north of Scotland. TK is applying her self-invented creative and interpretive brush strokes in <Aurora Revelation> to capture the light patterns through her own eyes. The artist has used this series of paintings to bring an awareness of Global warming as an issue that everyone should be concerned about.
The <Aurora Revelation> are circular artworks, which represent the Earth, Sun, Stars and the relationship of Human Solidarity. Each brush stroke is created using a unique circular motion. These numerous small circles, depicted on a circular canvas act as metaphors that appeal to everyone regardless of skin colour, race, nationality, political background, culture, gender, sexual orientation, ability, health, disability, social class, wealth or any other background to join together to protect our mother Earth in harmony.
