Jenny Kendler selects...
Isak Applin, Archipelago Dawn, 2006, oil on canvas
Lee Lee Chan, Untitled, 2008, enamel and acrylic on aluminium
Both artists paint landscapes which hint at interior or fantasy spaces. Chan appropriates images from contemporary advertising which she deftly collages into her dreamspaces, while Applin draws on past experience to depict languid summer-worlds of harmony and possibility. Both artists may be noted for their unusual and skillful use of color, which serves to draw the viewer into an intimate and sensual experience with their work. - Jenny Kendler
