  • Welcome to Utterly Art - Exhibition: We Are Kids Of Nobody
    2009 As a migrant artist from Shenyang in Liaoning Province China but having studied and spent formative years in Singapore Chang Jinchao experiences the ennui that comes from having a mixed or dual identity but a rootedness to neither Life in a small community of family and friends means an inevitable sharing of a common mentality or world view in language habits culture and this is manifested in his paintings as the inter connections between the sinuous shadowy denizens that populate his fantastical world But introduction of the other changes the dynamics and we see the figures swirl as they interact reaching out reacting avoiding forming new links as they encounter each other For the artist straddling this world and the other he is a vagrant with no home He exists between two spaces and cannot find a resolution for his nagging emptiness It is as if the cap on a container has been removed and the evaporated water will not return Artist Chang Jinchao China Chang Jinchao graduated from the LASALLE College of the Arts with a Masters in Fine Art in 2007 where he had previously received a BA in Fine Art Printmaking in 2006 and a Diploma

  • Welcome to Utterly Art - Exhibition: Old Memories, New Impressions
    venue details Dates 03 Jan 2008 13 Jan 2008 Tiong Bahru and Kampong Bahru are two of the oldest housing estates in Singapore where a congenial suburban atmosphere prevails A familial liveliness reminiscent of a modern kampong persists in Kampong Bahru that the more gentrified Tiong Bahru may gradually be losing Nevertheless neighbourly chatter the hanging of laundry and backyards stacked with old goods and potted plants are common features that give a nostalgic identity to both districts It is their unique architecture and distinctive markers of place that Singaporean artist Tan Ai Ngin has been inspired to capture on canvas Her plein air method of impressionistic painting gives her the added advantage of immersing herself into the life of the neighbourhood to encounter its vivid and earthy experiences The subjects of her paintings may provide familiar memories to its residents but to her they are fresh impressions vital and alive Artist Tan Ai Ngin Singapore Tan Ai Ngin born 1972 Singapore obtained her Diploma in Fine Arts at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in 1996 and her Bachelor of Arts in Chinese painting at the Nanjing Arts College China in 1999 She went on to complete a one

  • Welcome to Utterly Art - Exhibition: Strangeways
    living out wretched existences of their own devising A keen observer of human failings the artist paints desperate souls longing for all available representations of affection in this world wanting to possess every woman man or object of satisfaction and still being discontented in the end The show is about man s greatest and most insatiable desire to love and be loved in return A continuation of the artist s evolving blue period Strangeways manifests as a despondent blend of Barrioquinto s fractured cubism increased shades of blue compositional dynamism and an eeriness due to a disturbing distortion of the human face and anatomy Infused with a greater sense of narrative and attention to background details they tell sorrowful stories of the human condition the mama s boy who clings to his parent the unwanted daughter who gets in the way of her mother s conquests the perversion of a national figure the futile wait of a single man for his true love the disturbing affection of a stepfather for his youngest daughter Strangeways is Barrioquinto s visual chronicle of daily events and broken characters as seen through the surreal filters of his eyes subtle gloomy and somewhat ironic Artist
