Tay Bak Chiang

Tay Bak Chiang paints subjects found in the nature of Singapore and Southeast Asia, such as heliconias, lotus ponds, and rocks. He seeks to reinterpret them inventively in terms of form, composition, technique, material, and color. Lotus flowers, for example, are depicted as minimalist forms in bold hues; lotus stalks as thick, unembellished black strokes; and stones as textured shapes and sculptural blocks in intense colors made by combining pigments and traditional Chinese ink. Through these subjects, he expresses his sentiments and philosophies.
