LUKE HENG (b.1987, Singapore) is interested in the dialectics between painting, object, and picture making. His practice revolves around the conceptualisation and physical manifestation of painting with his works often responding to the history of painting while drawing from various other art forms to influence his approach and process, constantly questioning the possibilities of a painting. Heng graduated with BA (Hons) in Fine Arts from LASALLE College of the Arts in 2013, which he attended on a scholarship, and he has since been actively practicing art both locally and internationally. Presently, Heng is pursuing his Masters of Fine Art at LASALLE College of the Arts.
Heng’s first solo exhibition, The Waiting Room, was held at FOST Gallery, Singapore in 2015. Followed by a solo exhibition at Galerie Isabelle Gounod, Paris, France the following year. His last solo outing, After Asphodel, took place at Pearl Lam Galleries, Singapore in 2017. Participated in major group exhibitions include Constitutent Concreteness at Mizuma Gallery (2016, Singapore), Peculiar Textures at Galerie Steph (2015, Singapore), and Primavera 3 at Galerie Frédéric Lacroix (2014, Paris, France). He was selected to participate in the Dena Foundation Artist Residency Program in Paris, France, supported by the National Arts Council, Singapore.Art and Market, Luke Heng 'AL/linum' at A+ Works of Art
