About the artwork
Since his solo exhibition held in Alliance Francaise de Singapur in 2002, Fan has embarked on an exploration into abstract painting – an area of pictorial representation which seems to be his terra incognito. His academic background in Western Painting (which was generally a form of modified Soviet Social Reaism in the art curriculum of China) and achievements in it, however, did not hinder his path towards abstract imagery – an expansion in scope that does not always happen to artists who had already mastered, and had gained recognition in a particular genre.
