Artist Information

Ian Woo

Ian Woo (b.1967, Singapore) works in the language of abstraction. Influenced by forms of modernism, perceptual abstraction and the sound structures of music improvisation, his work is characterised by a sense of gravitational and representational change. He often uses the term ‘picture making’ when describing his position and approach, maintaining the discipline and development of painting as a vehicle for pictorial reflectivity. Woo has exhibited internationally, with works shown at National Gallery Singapore, Busan Museum of Art, Korea and Singapore Art Museum.
