About the Artist

Kristy Chan (b. 1997, Hong Kong) is a contemporary artist whose works are dense with information often exploring odd depictions of the environment. Kristy's paintings reflect on her upbringing in Hong Kong. Her hologram-like works explore the notion of displacement, movement, and change. Kristy's recent works are a documentation of the visuals and sensations during her time spent with that piece of work. She often describes certain uncanny qualities of her works as “stolen realities” in her surroundings. Shapes and forms are imported into her images, leaving their original meaning behind. Kristy lives and works in London, UK.

About the Artwork

When I was on my way to Heathrow airport, on my way to catch my flight back to Hong Kong, I saw this sign called hard shoulder traffic, I never knew what it meant but thought that was a funny name for a spot for cars to stop in case of accident.
