Phoenix Chan, “Nice to Meet You”
Haven Gallery is pleased to present Phoenix Chan for her second solo show “Nice to Meet You” at the gallery. The exhibition will display five new artworks; each demonstrating Chan’s skillful use of gouache and colored pencil as she adorns her feline protagonists with intricate and worldly costumery. Her sitters pose stately, as commonly found in traditional portraiture, accompanied by smaller companions such as birds and mice. Her attention to detail and focus on various cultural garb is a nod to her interest and studies at the Fashion Institution of Technology during her undergraduate career.
