Traversing the boundaries of painting and craft, abstract and figurative, Danielle makes paintings using paper and wood. This was a method developed during her studies at the Slade School of Fine Art where her wall-based paintings evolved into large-scale installations. This approach allowed her a spontaneous approach to making as each work grew wildly across the walls, resulting in whimsical creations which exude vibrancy and energy.
Danielle Tay (b1990, Singapore) graduated from the Slade School of Fine Art, University College London in 2014. She has exhibited both locally and internationally since 2008 in London, Korea, Moscow, Hong Kong and Singapore. Uncertain Discoveries, her most recent solo exhibition, took place in October 2017 at Chan + Hori Contemporary in Singapore.
Danielle most recently earned a Highly Commended Award in the reputable Rise Art Prize 2018. She was featured in The Peak magazine’s Jan 2017 issue in ‘The New Wave, Singapore’s next generation of artists’ and was named ‘Artist of the Month’ by ‘The Artling’ in April 2017.
