Ng Siok Hoon 黃淑芬（新加坡）
Lives and works in Singapore
Siok Hoon received her Bachelor of Visual Arts from Sydney College of the Arts, University of Sydney, Australia. She also holds a Post Graduate Diploma in Education from National Institute of Education (Nanyang Technological University), Singapore. Siok Hoon has participated in many local and overseas group exhibitions. She represented Singapore in numerous group exhibitions in GuangZhou (China), Japan, Hong Kong and Australia. She has been participating in the Affordable Art in Singapore since 2011. Currently she lectures part-time at local tertiary art institutions and secondary schools.
Siok Hoon’s current series of works deals with the idea of constant flux experienced in our immediate urban and natural environment. The artist often combines different natural phenomena with fragments of map or urban planning to unveil the coexistence of a fluid urbanscape in an unstable natural environment. Rather than literally depicting nature, she presents these natural phenomena in an unexpected way to suggest a sense of uncertainty and unpredictability in our environment, such as the sudden outburst of wind currents, light rays, isolated downpours or melting clouds.
淑芬最新系列作品在畫面上勾畫出我們不常留意霎時湧現的雲朵,瞬息多變飄浮的流雲,或是從雲層折射出的燦爛光芒,甚至對突發傾盆驟雨的描繪。以期直白的描繪自然, 她通過揮灑流暢的細緻技法, 以局部和細微多變的天象圖, 哲理性的反映當前高度城市規劃迅速多變的景觀, 與自然環境的複雜微妙的共生關係。
