Guo-Liang Tan is an artist working primarily with painting and text. Tan’s practice explores the tension between the phenomenological and the psychological in the process of painting and writing. His artist publication, Aversions (2009), brought together reflections from Singaporean artists on writing, drawing, and conceptualism. Between December 2015 and April 2016, Tan was Artist-in-Residence at NTU CCA Singapore, where he continued his research on abstraction and the notion of touch as an indexical and invocative gesture.
