Abstract

For the many visitors coming to the Museum of East Asian Art, objects in the museum’s collection may appear exotic and unfamiliar. It is nevertheless possible to appreciate the beauty of foreign objects without knowing much about their history or cultural context.

The Museum worked with illustrator Chloe Regan, who graduated from the Royal College of Art with an MA , to explore different ways of seeing an object. Looking from different angles and observing details, standing from a distance as well as sitting close to the cabinets, Chloe Regan has created a series of drawings showing how she engages with unfamiliar works of art by focusing on their shape, the effect of light and shade as well as surface decoration and texture.
