Gerald Tay

(B 1992, SingAPORE)

Gerald Tay organises pictorial space through intentional stacking and overlapping of figures and forms. He returns, each time, to the motif of the mask as a representation of power dynamics - referencing facades, multiple and ever-changing personas. Drawing parallels to the historical act of portraiture, where status and respect are accorded to the subjects of a portrait, he questions the observer versus the observed and the various hierarchies that we inhabit.
