About Gailan Ngan
Gailan Ngan works and lives in Vancouver and occasionally works from Hornby Island. Her practice involves pottery, sculpture, and co-managing the art estate of her late father, Wayne Ngan. Ngan collects material from many sources, including both commercial and natural. Her ceramic sculptures accumulate layers of fused surfaces into compositions of texture and colour.
She graduated with a BFA from Emily Carr University, Vancouver, in 2002. She has shown work at Cooper Cole, Toronto; The Apartment, Vancouver; San Diego Art Institute; Nanaimo Art Gallery; Art Gallery at Evergreen, Coquitlam; Kamloops Art Gallery; Unit 17, Vancouver; and Vancouver Art Gallery. In 2015 she received the North-West Ceramic Foundation Award of Excellence. Ngan is represented by Monte Clark Gallery in Vancouver.
