‘PANORAMA’ — Chris Yee

We’re very excited to announce the 2nd solo exhibition by Chris Yee — ‘BETWEEN’.

With PANORAMA, Chris Yee explores power through size and scale – more directly the representation of sport teams, gangs, ancient armies and governments throughout time. 

Through a series of large scale artworks he finally mends the missing links between the social youth of Chinatown, the suburbs of Ryde and the Roman empire.
