Nancy Gan Porcelain art

Nancy Gan continues to push the envelope of porcelain techniques by melding her art with textures and styles from other mediums. Educated as a classical pianist at Trinity College of London (LTCL), she has been a prolific artist since 1986.

Porcelain painting is characterised by the immense flexibility a masterful creator has over the depth and perception of the painting to create subtle backdrops while bringing into focus its subject, the vibrancy and nuances of colours unparalleled across a variety of themes covering landscapes, flora and fauna. Nancy also uses the varying properties of the medium to add flair to her paintings, from the brilliant white of bone china to reflect the purity of the Cattleya Andean Mist orchid to a romantic landscape painting on translucent china. We hope that the selected pieces in her online portfolio will convey a small measure of her art.

Demonstrations for charity fund-raising efforts have increased the visibility of her art to a greater audience, with press covered demonstrations in aid of numerous charities in the US, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan and Australia.

Over the course of her career, Nancy has worked in close cooperation with multinational organizations and corporate bodies and devotes most of her time nowadays to philanthropic activities in Singapore and the Far East region.

Below are some of the notable activities that she has done over the years:

个人简介

颜婉玉 (Nancy Gan) 出生于香港,祖籍金门,作为一名曾在伦敦圣三一学院(Trinity College)(LTCL)学习的古典钢琴家,自1980年以来,她一直是一位多产的艺术家。她一直努力尝试并成功实现将其他介质的结构与特性融入她的艺术风格来发展超越现有的瓷艺技术。

陶瓷彩绘艺术能给予一个熟练的创作者极大的色彩灵活性。颜婉玉凭借她思想的深度及对绘画的感知运用生动多变的颜色来创造微妙的背景,并将焦点带入作品的题材。她的作品主题涵盖山水,动物和植物。从用白色的骨瓷来表现卡特兰安第斯雾兰花的纯洁到用半透明的瓷器来传达浪漫,颜婉玉将不同介质的不同特性融入绘画,使其更加光彩夺目,栩栩如生。这些从她在线作品集所选佳中可见一斑 (www.nancygan.com).

一直以来,颜婉玉都积极为慈善事业筹集资金,这些展览覆盖美国,新加坡,香港,日本和澳大利亚等地。在她的职业生涯中,颜婉玉长期与跨国组织和公司密切合作,现在她将其大部分时间致力于新加坡和远东地区的慈善活动。
