Chng Seok Tin

Chng Seok Tin’s (1946-2019) seminal practice pioneered the narrative of fine art printing in Singapore, introducing the breadth and possibilities of printmaking techniques to a community dominated by painting and sculpture. Her image making was informed by the tensions and contradictions in Singaporean society – whether of conservatism, capitalism, or simply a person’s place in society. Visually impaired after an accident in 1988, Chng’s practice pivoted towards tactile and textural printmaking techniques such as drypoint and engraving, thereon developing a highly idiosyncratic style that influenced successive generations of Singaporean printmakers. A multi-hyphenated artist, Chng is also known for her writings, lyrics, and sculptures.
