Gailan Ngan: Chronicles
Previously known for her accomplished and inventive pottery and tableware, Gailan Ngan has recently focused her creative expression on larger ceramic sculpture and mixed-media installations. Chronicles is a “fictional environment” employing a variety of whimsical ceramic forms whose slips, glazes, bulges and cracks are suggestive of the human body. Ngan further augments her sculptures with found objects and materials and arranges them in quirky groupings that imply both narrative and connectedness.
