Chris HUEN Sin Kan was born in 1991, Hong Kong. He obtained BA in Fine Arts at The Chinese University of Hong Kong in 2013. With an emphasis in painting, HUEN’s practice explores the minute and exquisite experiences of everyday daily life. The artist believes that the essence of existence should not be constructed nor constricted by conventions that are the result of a collective cognition. Thus his works avoid grandiose topics of human constructs such as history, religion and politics. Instead, he believes that life should be informed by intuition on a personal level. He is particularly drawn to fanatical behaviours and trivial moments that carry immense vitality such as a small dog or an ordinary lawn.
HUEN’s art is the modern style of en plein air – hereto indoor. Each particular in an interior scene of a frozen moment is a unique object to the artist’s intuition. He demonstrates adroit sensitivity towards the indefinite and indistinct relationship between object and space in order to capture the specific physical aura hovering each particular interior scene.
