Déjà vu is a solo exhibition featuring the work of Chinese artist Tao Xian.
Running from 25th April till 25th May, Tao Xian’s exhibition unveils a series of paintings which were created between 2017 and 2019.
Tao Xian expresses her artistic identities through painting, photography and print making. She manipulates found photographs using digital techniques before transferring to cotton or linen with oil.
Particularly, she is interested in exploring the relationship between advanced technology and traditional painting, and how the technology influences the artist’s artistic directions or the audience’s understanding of contemporary painting.
Her works feel like they are slowly fading away, yet staying strong in your memory; Her vigorous colours contrast her euphemistic figures in a portamento style, which diffuses a sense of eastern beauty.
Venue: Asian Art Platform, 292 River Valley Road, Level 2, Singapore 238333
When: 25 Apr - 25 May 2019, 10am - 6 pm – Closed on Mondays & Sundays
