Wyn-Lyn Tan

b. 1974, Singapore
Lived and works in Singapore

Wyn-Lyn Tan’s artistic practice is grounded in painting. Her practice centres around her observations of the natural world and phenomena, and is driven by a visual language shaped through rhythm and intuition. Intrigued by the invisible forces of nature that affect us, she approaches painting as the art of metamorphosis, often letting serendipity, unpredictability and time drive the work.

Drawing upon geology, physics, alchemy and ecology, she investigates the potentiality of painting to discover space, light and new dimensions. This has led to works that exist somewhere between image and form, and most recently, in the realm of generative art videos. Seen as an extension of her painting practice, her generative art videos is a dance between serendipity and the intentional, as she collaborates with machine learning technology to train over thousands of images of her own paintings to create a virtual universe where two realities coexist.

She has exhibited widely, including in Singapore, New York, Norway and Art Basel Hong Kong. Her work can be found in the permanent collection of the Singapore Art Museum, as well as numerous other public and private collections. She is represented by FOST Gallery (Singapore) and Sapar Contemporary (NYC).
