UOB presents 14 artworks by Ms Joanne Pang, 2018 UOB Painting of the Year (Singapore) Gold Award Winner, Established Artist Category as the next artist showcase at the UOB Art Gallery. In Enter and Echo, Ms Pang explores the relationship between the natural creases of cloth (structure), paint (material) and state of mind (memory). Through her paint strokes, she creates visual rhythms, which represent one emotional and psychological state.

Ms Pang’s artworks are bold and expressive. While her primary use of paint is Chinese ink, Ms Pang incorporates the use of lipstick, wax pencil and graphite to add depth and texture to her artworks.

UOB is the organiser and sponsor of Enter and Echo.

Her Winning Artwork

2018 UOB Painting of the Year (Singapore)
Gold Award, Established Artist Category

Mixed media on cotton (Acrylic and Chinese ink)
140 x 150cm

Slash, the title of this painting, holds meaning as both a physical action and the symbol /, meaning ‘either or’. As an action, slashing brings to mind the use of a quick, direct force that results in an impact. Here, the artist creates an image of force, dynamism and transformation with her painting technique and choice of medium. As a symbol, the idea of ‘either or’ can be seen figuratively through the artist’s movements between action and inaction during painting, the concept of time passing and stopping captured on the canvas. The result is a display of the creative process the artist goes through in her exploration of the state of becoming.
