Khor Ting Yan 许庭彦
Khor Ting Yan is a Singaporean artist. She works with the processes of printmaking and drawing to render figurative portrayals of places contrasted with gestural mark-making, constructing illustrated landscapes and imaginary architectural spaces. Through layering and collaging of hand-drawn and printed images, she explores what these places mean to others and herself.
Her illustrations are typically simplified abstractions of reality, capturing banal moments that often go unnoticed. Many of these scenes have a degree of specificity to them, yet are at the same time familiar, evoking memories and the feeling of nostalgia that each individual may associate with the imagery. These scenes are a way for her to connect with others: a collective landscape of distant but significant memories.
