Ruben Pang

Art Stage Singapore

16 - 19 January 2014

Chronologically folding into one another, this series of portraits circulate collected memories of film stills, synesthesia and the residue of preceding paintings. During the process Pang pulls each subsequent painting in a dierent direction, alternating between abstraction and condensed figures of flesh and smoke. This selection of portraits focuses on the hypnotic, almost anesthetic qualities of this schism, aspiring to create a fortress-like space behind which both the viewer and artist can lose themselves.
