About the artwork
The brushstrokes of Aaron Gan demonstrate his mastery over the watercolour medium. He depicts images of still life intertwined with light and shadow from their surroundings, in a showcase of vividness. With the use of his approach that is similar to that of the early Modernists, he feels that watercolor has the ability to transform an object within layers of surrounding space. The vase of flowers is depicted against a lavish backdrop of violet and turquoise hues, colours intermingling in fluid perfection.
