Synopsis:

TAKSU Singapore is pleased to present Jamie Tan You Kean's second solo debut with a new series of works.

Jamie Tan (Singapore) is a graduate from Lasalle College of the Arts, Singapore, in partnership with Goldsmiths University of London with a BA (Hons) in Fine Arts.

Jamie Tan is interested in how colour lingers in a state of latency, existing within and channelling through a transitional space between our subjective experience and the objective world, inherently shaping the relationship we have with colour.

In his solo exhibition, Takes Two To Tango, Jamie further explores colour as an aspect of interaction that one can have with abstract painting. He highlights its unique character in affecting its surroundings, as well as how it influences our feelings at any given time and space.

He delves deeper into the notion of colour as a sensation; an intangible force that can be arrested and brought to the fore. Takes Two To Tango touches on a pleasure-driven process, akin to a meditation in which the artist accumulates and organises colour as pockets of energy on the surface all while investigating its limitless potential.

The opening reception commences on 7th November, Thursday, from 7.00 PM to 10.00 PM with the artist present.

The exhibition runs 8th November till 30th November.
