I received my first formal art education at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (Singapore), where I was trained in the mediums of traditional Chinese painting, calligraphy and seal-carving. I have not turned back since.
Over the years, I adopted a interdisciplinary, process-centric approach, working with other mediums. I believe in the narrative potentiality of materials, and that every material speaks in ways that others cannot. In my works, I use diverse materials to articulate conditions of formation /growth /regeneration, as well as disintegration/ decay. Through different art forms /materials /techniques, I seek to explore the diversity and complexities of the cultural and natural phenomena around us, with the hope of transforming them into new understandings.
I have exhibited and presented my art works and research works internationally in physical venues and online platforms, which include museums, galleries, art centres and universities in Singapore, Australia, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
