Young Singaporean artist Teng Yen Lin is proud to present her first solo exhibition from 22-23 September 2012. This show, Dancing on Thin Air, presents over 200 works accumulated over the past 7 years of her art practice, revealing a young adult’s reflections on an inner world barely glimpsed. Rendered primarily in acrylic, each canvas is painted with the thoughts and feelings of the artist in a poignant negotiation of both physical and metaphysical worlds. Questions of isolation, identity, and transcendence persist, yet nonetheless prove that even from the darkest of moments can emerge the most beautiful of things.
Teng Yen Lin (b. 1990, Singapore) is an up-and-coming artist. With a deep interest in art that took root when she was very young, Teng has been actively involved in numerous exhibitions and competitions. She is well known for her interactive tape installations at Tactile at the Singapore Art Museum (2009-2010) and OH! Open House (2011), with her work receiving prominent attention in both the English and Mandarin press, Mediacorp TV, and local radio.
Her exhibition will be held from 22-23 September 2012 at 16 Marshall Road, 9am-6pm. Opening night: 21 September 7.30-10.30pm, by invitation only.
