‘Formlessness Within Form’ is a joint art exhibition by two artists, Dutch artist José Sintnicolaas and Singaporean artist and poet Deepa Khanna Sobti, at the Substation from 15 – 17 April.
While the art styles of both artists is abstract, José expresses more form in her art and boldly experiments with various mediums. Deepa’s style is more purist using only oils and palette knife. Her art and poems point only towards the formless reality of all form. Deepa is an international award winning Biennale artist and has exhibited in museums and galleries all over Europe. 75% profits from Deepa’s practice are donated to charity.
Deepa is a Singaporean international award winning Biennale artist and poet. She writes a poem for every abstract expressionist Oil painting that she makes.

She is also currently shortlisted for the International Emerging Artist Award, 2015.
José is a Dutch artist who, despite following a classical education at an art academy in Belgium, developed her art in a loose abstract style of mixed media paintings. She has exhibited in Shanghai, Hong Kong and Singapore.
