Kevin Chin

Kevin Chin paints shimmering dreamscapes that offer an openhearted retreat. They piece together cues from across continents, testing the fluidity of oil painting, to advocate borderless new territories. These in-between places reference the mixed cultural traces we each inhabit, through our memories, experiences, ancestry, or even just our interests: both individually and through our collective consciousness. Immediately atmospheric, they meander like the mind, then reveal quirky vignettes in elaborate details. Incongruities act as portals, with parts even upside down, opening space to re-imagine the societal structures that we take as given.
