Tiffany Loy

b. 1987, Singapore
Lives and works in Singapore

Tiffany Loy is a Singaporean artist trained in industrial design at the National University of Singapore, then textile-weaving at Kawashima Textile School in Japan. Loy is a recipient of the ‘DesignSingapore Scholarship’, graduating in 2020 with an MA in Textiles from the Royal College of Art in London.

Loy’s background in product and textile design has led to her unique approach in creating artworks with minute details, while keeping in mind their overall impact in the larger, spatial context. She employs a weaver’s approach to sculpture that explores fundamental relationships between elements of materiality like colour, structure, and tension. The miniscule details in Loy’s work invite viewers to take a closer look and indulge in the act of observing. The viewers perception of colour in the sculpture works change depending on the distance, reminding us of the fragility of our understanding of things around us.

Since the founding of her studio in 2014, Loy’s experimental works have been exhibited internationally at venues such as Singapore Art Museum, Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art, and La Triennale di Milano. She has exhibited three solo exhibitions entitled ‘Is This Fabric’, ‘Expanding Rectangles’, and ‘Textile Embossing Instruments’ in London. She has also been a part of a number of group shows in Singapore, South Korea, and Japan. Tiffany received the ‘Design Anthology Award’ (Textiles), ‘Honourable Mention’ at Sangetsu Wallpaper Design Awards, and won the ‘Bombay Sapphire Designer Glass Competition’ in Singapore.
