ATAS reinterpretation of Georgette Chen’s self-portraits and still-life, introduces new subjects' matter and rendition to what is a widely recognized masterpiece.

 


︎ ︎ Still life was a favorite subject of Georgette Chen, whereby ordinary and everyday objects from life were painted. Bananas in a basket, 1953-1955 and Mooncakes with Green Pomelo, 1965 – 1968 was given the same execution bold, broad and bright brushstrokes. Their already simplified form was taken a step further, graphical strokes and flat rendered colors are juxtaposed to create an unstable artificial definition of space yet preserving the multiple perspective that’s so characteristic in Post- Impressionistic style artworks. Does the new graphic interpretation still assert the emotive suggestion of symbolic meaning? - harmony of the pomelos, family’s prosperity and reunion of mooncakes, the South East Asian simplistic lifestyle of the tropical fruit basket.
