CHEN HAN | THE VAST DARKNESS
Hadrien de Montferrand is pleased to present Chen Han’ s solo show “The Vast Darkness” from June 11 to August 28 featuring oil paintings and watercolors on paper. Born in Liaoning, Chen Han (b.1973) graduated in 2005 from the Lu Xun Academy of Fine Arts, an academy renowned for its realistic and figurative tradition. Over the last decade Chen Han has developed a very specific style inspired by film noir in which male and female characters interact in a dramatic way. The works of Chen Han therefore give us a sense of uneasiness while at the same time making us partake into intimate moments. With his painterly portraits and still lives, Chen Han produces a crepuscular and private world for us to tiptoe through.
