Keith Teo – S.E.A. Focus

Keith Teo

Singapore / AC43 Gallery

Keith Teo’s (b. 1992, Singapore) practice is a sensorial exploration of the relationship between the machine-made, digital and analogue through the use of colour and materiality. His paintings are a blend of preconceptions and intuitions, reflecting an interplay of cognitive and perceptual experiences.

Keith’s work straddles between the uncomfortable and immaterial, which to him is always implicated in materiality – informed by elements of chance, accident, and arbitrary intervention, creating possibilities for the personal, elusive and unknown.

Keith graduated with a Diploma in Fine Arts from LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore, in 2015. was recently awarded the Highly Commended prize in the Established Artist Category of the 2021 UOB 40th Painting of the Year Competition. He was also shortlisted as a finalist of Clifton Art Prize in 2017.
