Melissa Tan

Melissa Tan (b. 1989, Singapore) is a visual artist based in Singapore and received her BA (Fine Arts) from Lasalle College of the Arts in 2011. Her works are based on nature, themes of transience and beauty of the ephemeral. Her recent projects revolve around landscapes and the process of formation. Interested in geography and textures of rocks, she explores to translate the visual language through different mediums. Employing processes such as paper cutting, painting and silk-screen techniques, she is interested in materiality and how the medium supports the work. Though trained as a painter, she also works with video, sound and objects.

She was included in The Singapore Show: Future Proof, Singapore Art Museum at 8Q in 2012 and An Atlas of Mirrors, Singapore Biennale 2016, Singapore in 2016. She also participated in the National Art Council and Dena Foundation Artist Residency program (Paris, France) in 2013. Public collections include Singapore Art Museum (SAM), Marina Bay Sands (Singapore), Government of Singapore Investment Corporation (GIC) New York, Facebook (Singapore), CapitaLand (Singapore). Solo exhibitions include Under the Arched Sky (2019) Richard Koh Fine Art, Singapore; Back to where we’ve never been (2018), Richard Koh Fine Art, Kuala Lumpur; Arc of Uncertainties (2016), Richard Koh Fine Art, Singapore; and the Darkest Hour is Just Before Dawn (2014), Richard Koh Fine Art, Singapore.
