Artist Statement

The real world and the virtual ‘underworld’ are important concepts in Siyuan Tan's work. Drawing from his Manchu heritage, he employs a series of elements from Manchu-Tibetan Buddhism and shamanic culture in this recent paintings, such as the unique spatial overlapping relationship found in Thangka paintings, and depictions of the “psychic eye”, connecting the earthly and spiritual realms. In Tan’s painted universe, enchantment coexists with roving tension, underscored by the artist’s kaleidoscopic color palette. The dynamic equilibrium between yin and yang, masculinity and femininity, and the symmetry of the images make Tan's work appear orderly and disciplined, while elements such as mist and vines interrupt the viewer's vision and imbue the paintings with a kinetic quality.
