Visual artist Sinyee Tan


This series of works questions the idea of the portrait. People perceive portraits and photographs as a sign of an immediate identity.

Often staged and constructed to suggest the intent of the sitter, a portrait becomes a major part of our identity. But when the visual aspect of what seemed to suggest our personality is taken away, will the intangible aspects of what we choose to reveal or conceal define us?


The nature of my art explores the human condition of living in contemporary societies. I am curious about the motivations that direct the many quests of humankind. My latest body of work uses animals as a form of visual inquiry and will be revealed at the end of 2021.
