Chan Hampe Galleries, a gallery actively promoting contemporary arts, presents Mysterious Skin, a solo exhibition by Simon Ng, a Singaporean contemporary artist.
The artist, who is a part-time lecturer at Lasalle College of the Arts, focuses on human visage by employing an impasto technique. He applied thick paints to create a highly textured surface on the subject's facial features and revealed little of the individual identities, exposing the artist's own desire and fascination with human features.
Simon's current works are mostly a series of male silhouettes which suggests the artist's approach in projecting a sense of self into his artworks. The paintings reminisce the works of British artist Frank Auerbach.
Simon (b. 1974, Singapore), initially trained as a graphic designer, became an artist when he turned 30. He is influenced by European Existentialist painters. He graduated with Bachelor degree in Fine Arts from Open University, U.K in 2009, and received Winston Oh's Postgraduate Fine Art Research Fund in 2012. Private collectors from Stockholm, Oslo, and Singapore have collected his works.
