“lob an abstract into backwash

glaze snarled up in a mesh

a dreamy wreckage of time"

- Drenched Co.

Comment: "In Elysium, Tuan reaches for what seems like a vanished moment in art history when a frankness in declarations for painted surfaces met the mystic realms of colours that bloomed and receded and collided with conflicting proportions and perspectives and wild designs. Any content apart from ideal dreamy happiness ( Elysium-like)  seems to be an affront to the purity of these paintings but Tuan has charmingly managed complexity and seduction simultaneously while giving hints of himself without appearing presumptively autobiographical. Beauty in these paintings, apart from being a web of half hidden clues, suggestions and portents is about an emerging dream-like fullness, a memory of an unfolding life that, for me, touched on a certain stillness where one can  receive time." - Raj
