After Asphodel by Luke Heng

A development from his previous visual examinations of paintings and castings, Singaporean artist Luke Heng presents a series of new works that tackle the spiritual and literal construction of the non-place. Dealing with ideas of liminality, impermanence, and transcendent space, Heng’s evocations run the gamut from paintings to sculptures, and for the first time, site-specific installations.

This solo exhibition marks an evolution of Heng as he ventures beyond the realms of the (sculptural) two-dimensional, augmenting his practice while still working with oil on linen, wax, and steel.

Born in 1987, Heng is interested in the dialectics between painting, object, and picture-making. He actively practices art locally and internationally after graduating with BA (Hons) in Fine Arts from LASALLE College of the Arts in 2013.
