About the Event
Exemplifying and validating our core value of nurturing young talent in the artistic and creative circle, Artesan Gallery + Studio closes 2014 with young artist Denise Jillian Tan and her second solo exhibition. We had ﬁrst presented an “introspective” showcase of works charting Denise’s artistic development in May 2013. Eighteen months later - it is with excitement and pleasure we open her collection of entirely new works, Spoonful of Sugar.
Denise is a visual author. Like a novelist, she crafts epic tales with her brush and palette, creating images that give pause for thought and introspection. Questioning the ways of the world and looking beneath the veneer of civility, Denise gives vent to the hopes of youth the world over, for an age and time of greater sensitivity and equipoise.Denise has pushed herself artistically and technically for this exhibition, presenting all new works for the very ﬁrst time.
Akin to pre-New-Year post-mortem of the year past and imagining what lies ahead after the countdown, this exhibition encourages a re-imaging of our codes and mores, allowing ourselves greater freedom of thought and knowledge.
