Phuan Thai Meng
Batu Pahat, Johor, Malaysia , 1974
BIO
I mainly work with painting and installation, using various visual strategies and languages responding to conceptual and contextual requirements. I see art making as a process of learning, thinking and communicating. Far from mysterious, it is, rather, a state of living, a fun game, spurred by curiosity. In my art I explore the social ecology of the land we live in. Through the observation of our rapid urbanization, infastructural development, politics and living conditions, I reflect on and question these very social and ecological phenomena. It is a way for me to learn and understand more about the land where I grew up.
