Grey Projects is proud to present Jon Chan’s artist tour for his ongoing exhibition, Gaze and Gloss. Join us for a highly personal session as Jon sheds new light on his work.
Gaze and Gloss, a new suite of paintings by Jon Chan, is his second solo exhibition at Grey Projects. These paintings alternate between images of deeply ambivalent figures, drawn from various news and documentary sources, and images of public space security cameras. Taking his cue from two novels, Shusaku Endo’s Silence and Juliane Barnes’ The Noise of Time, Jon pursues the alienation of individuals caught in a doubled estrangement. Jon’s images depict various groups of people estranged from both their idealisations and the systems of coercive authority that presses upon their ideals a persistent threat of violence.
