Terence Tan

Terence Tan

Born: 1970

Hometown: Singapore

Based in: Singapore

TERENCE uses photography to create intense personal moments by deviating from widely accepted rules or guidelines, enticing the viewer into his surrealistic picture-scapes. Exploring new ways to ‘read the city’, he draws the viewer into a world of ongoing equilibrium, juxtaposing old with new urban structures, streetscapes and human activities.

Nothing in his artworks keeps still, always in a state of flux, mirroring the interconnected, ever changing surroundings that we experience everyday, hence establishes a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined. Emphasising on aesthetics, he focuses on the idea of ‘public space’ and more specifically on the idea that beauty exists everywhere, if you just take a moment, you can enjoy the space that we all conveniently overlook in our hectic daily lives.

The results are reconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted. His works urges us to renegotiate photography as being part of a reactive medium or merely an instrument of recording. Rather than presenting a factual reality, an illusion is created to conjure the realms of our imagination which is always in a state of flux.

Born in Singapore in 1970, he graduated from Singapore Poytechnic with a Diploma in Electronics Engineering in 1990. A self-taught photographer, he got his first taste of digital photography with a camera he received from a Christmas gift exchange in 2002. He has been a professional photographer since 2007.

Private Collection:
Some of Terence's bespoke artworks adorns luxury hotel Capitol Kempinski Singapore's "The Lobby Lounge".
