“Guo-Liang Tan: Ghost Screen” is a solo exhibition featuring 10 recent and new paintings by the artist. This exhibition marks the first collaboration between the artist and Ota Fine Arts. Following his last solo exhibition “Play Dead” in 2012, Tan continues to explore and investigate the notion of painting today. The paintings in this exhibition were developed by the artist while working in Glasgow/ Frankfurt, and following his recent residency at NTU CCA Singapore.
The exhibition title “Ghost Screen” refers to the painting surface, not just as a physical ground for mark making but also as a screen for imaginings and haunting. While working on this series, the artist was drawn to the idea of a phantasmal presence and how gestures of touch may be used to rethink the material body of painting as a site for evocation rather than expression.
