In NO LIMITS, Tan Suz Chiang is showcasing a rare collection of his acrylic and charcoal artworks. His new works are personal to him; it is a “hommage” to his childhood memories. Although much of the childhood visuals in his mind are vague, he has found an effective way to present it – the use of Black and White shades. These colours have a lasting impression on his life, from his memory of his first “black and white” television to learning the art of sketching in his student years; and metaphorically he uses these shades to represent the fading memories of his childhood. When viewers first laid eyes on his new works, they could sense a strong intensity in his strokes and an uncanny aura of force. There is a transformation in his style and it evokes much maturity from the artist. His new works is contrasting to the mild mannered person that I have known him to be, it seems to convey to us that there is much more to him than what he is portraying to us. He carefully leaves us with much space in his works for us to fill in the gaps with our own understanding and meaning.
