The Story of the Stone
by Art Projects Gallery
Location: Art Projects Gallery
Artist(s): TAY Bak Chiang
Date: 11 May - 25 May 2014

Art Projects Gallery presents Singapore artist Tay Bak Chiang’s solo exhibition titled “The Story of the Stone”. The exhibition also celebrates the opening of Art Projects Gallery’s new gallery space at the newly renovated PMQ in Central, a heritage building formerly known as the Police Married Quarters.

The Story of the Stone” is titled after a Chinese literature of the same name (also known as “Dreams of the Red Mansion” written by Cao Xueqin) that tells the story of a Stone Spirit in the mortal world. Bak Chiang is particularly inspired by the allegorical portrayal of the Stone, in which a lifeless object could be bestowed worldly experiences and personal expressions. In his distinctive compositions of abstract minimalist forms, striking colors and rich textures, Bak Chiang imbues each of his stone subjects with its individual character and seeks to tell their unique stories.

Tay Bak Chiang, born in 1973, graduated from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in Singapore in 1995 and studied at the China Academy of Art in Hangzhou, China, in 1997. He was awarded the First Prize in the Chinese Painting category in the 19th and 22nd United Overseas Bank Painting of the Year Competitions (2000 and 2003 respectively). In 2002 he received the Young Artist Award from the National Arts Council of Singapore.
