Guyana-born Lucie Chan creates multi-layered drawings result from working with voluntary participants from the public to discover potentially connected cross-cultural narratives between seemingly disparate lives. Her recent work frequently involves one on one interviews, in order to gain depth into race-related, immigrant experiences, which are often rooted in misunderstandings and wrongful accusations in the public realm, and aim to provide more answers than answer questions through the translation of stories. She has participated in several solo, duo and group exhibitions across Canada such as Centre For Asian Arts, National Art Gallery, Museum London, Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, and Richmond Art Gallery to name a few, and participated in several international residencies in Spain, Italy, Portugal, and France. In addition to receiving numerous provincial and national grants, she has been long-listed twice for the Sobey Art Award in and received the VIVA Award in 2020.
