A solo exhibition by Ian WOO employing painting as a ‘mental’ device where modulating forms generated are often caught between imaginary crevices and haptic spaces. Appearances and reflections of voids and surfaces pulsate throughout each work, resembling filters, screens or parts of a structure in the midst of transference.

Ian WOO (b. 1967, Singapore) is an artist working in the language of abstraction. Influenced by forms of modernism, perceptual abstraction and the sound structures of music improvisation, his work is characterised by a sense of gravitational and representational change. He often uses the term ‘picture making’ when describing his position and approach, maintaining the discipline and evolvement of painting as a vehicle for pictorial reflectivity.
