Joe’s approach to painting is quite unique. He claims to have no great purpose to his paintings, no common themes or concepts, but instead presents them as being pictorial and narrative, depicting various stories and concepts for the viewer to interpret.
He is fond of playing visual tricks in his work, and often paints ‘tongue-in-cheek’, taking liberties with perspective and magnifying the scale of his images. The four lithographs made at Peacock Visual Arts highlight Joe Fan’s skills as a draughtsman. Visually rich in line and narrative and executed with his favoured combination of conte crayon on hand made Japanese paper the prints have all the quality of his drawing.
