ARTIST

Anabela Chan

 

DESCRIPTION

Anabela Chan originally trained as an architect and designs incredibly complex, delicate pieces of infinite depth and dazzling colors. Anabela Chan’s love for color extends into the exotic. During a childhood spent traveling, she developed an interest in ornithology and, later, taxidermy. These fascinations take her objet d’art into the realm of entomology.

 

Each piece has dozens of butterfly wings attached to spokes and spools of brass and gold. Divorced of their “thingness,” these wings become intricate masses of ethereal color. Chan’s pieces evoke the Fin-de-Siecle collections of painted porcelain menageries. Their fragility and precision combine to create forms that hardly seem objects of nature.

 

Through an alchemy of natural, precious and man-made materials, Anabela combines elegant sculptural forms with dream-like romanticism and thought-provoking narratives.
