WANTED: possession and rejection - New works by Eric Chan

In November of this year, Chan Hampe Galleries @ Raffles Hotel will exhibit an entirely new series in a bold new direction never before taken by the artist. A watershed exhibition, Chan takes great personal risk by painting with a brutal honesty, reflective of the artist’s deep personal struggle to accept the past and embrace the uncertainty of the future.

Art Exhibition previously on at Chan Hampe Galleries @ Raffles Hotel in Singapore.
From Friday 11 November 2011 to Sunday 11 December 2011
