|Bondages od Desire|
Malaysian artist Eric Chan has a new solo exhibition at Chan Hampe Galleries with a new series of work exploring the artist's personal relationship struggles. Anchoring the show is a large installation of one of his childhood toy, a rocking horse , pulled dozens of little taxidermied ducklings (a very Trojan horse image, though have no idea what the ducklings symbolize, because Chan's own symbol is usually the rabbit! )
|Pleasures of an Unnatural Nature|
The Singapore-based artist continues to pursue his recognizable painting style, but his narrative is introspective as he explores his own sexuality and mortality. In the self-portrait Reflections of Truth, Chan's head is wrapped with his t-shit, camouflaging his identity as well as his deepest desire, explained more explicitly in Pleasure of an Unnatural Nature.
