F.F. Interviews Oakland Artist, Nancy Chan

Chris Pew talked to Nancy Chan, who paints isolated figures in black ink. She takes photographs of the models, and makes series of each subject. In the artist's words:
"My sumi ink drawings are, in a sense, portraits of figures interacting both with other figures and the spaces around them. Many of them are works in a series, and deal with a quiet intimacy between the subjects, the space, and the viewer. The sequential nature combined with the detail work is essentially a long, close study of all the little things that occur in a few seconds time - weight shifts, heads tilt, fabrics fold."
