"After Asphodel" Artist Process Booklet by Pearl Lam Galleries
Solo Exhibition by Luke Heng

Launched in conjunction with Singapore Art Week, Pearl Lam Galleries is pleased to present the “After Asphodel” artist process booklet. Meant as a companion to Luke Heng’s second solo exhibition in Singapore, the booklet reveals Heng’s ephemeral art-making process, and features a curatorial foreword by Pearl Lam Galleries' Managing Director – Asia, Josef Ng, an essay by artist and curator Michael Lee, and poems from writer Euginia Tan.

Known chiefly for his alluring visual examinations of painting as a subject and medium, the new works on show mark the evolution of Heng’s practice as he ventures beyond the realms of two-dimensional and wall-based sculptural art. These evocations include paintings, wax works, and for the first time, a site-specific installation. 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 a BA (Hons) in Fine Arts from LASALLE College of the Arts in 2013.


"After Asphodel" is presented by Pearl Lam Galleries from 2 December 2017 to 25 February 2018. Download the artist process booklet here
