Biography

Chan Hong Ting (b. 1998, Singapore) is visual artist who previously majored in printmaking in her Diploma years. Employing similar ideas of transferring imageries in printmaking, Chan also experiments with drawing and crafting as new ways of translating and manipulating visuals and experiences. Revolving around ideas of traces and transformations, her practice stems from her attentiveness to objects, materials, and spaces found in her domestic and natural environment. Through her attempts of deconstruction and reconstruction of "parts" and "wholes", she explores the notions of the presence, absence, and the less noticed. She is currently fascinated with paper, specifically paper pulp, as a shapeshifting and organic material in the re-creation of new forms and perspectives, in reflection of her surrounding environment.

 

Chan's works have been selected for various group exhibitions at the Project Space, Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore (2018/2019), LASALLE Open House (2018), and The LASALLE Show (2020). She was also awarded the LASALLE Scholarship (2018-2019), Tan Chay Bing Scholarship (2019-2020) and Ngee Ann Kongsi Scholarship (2020-2021). Chan is currently pursuing her second year of Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Fine Arts at LASALLE College of the Arts,
