"Number Trance-Face: Paintings by Rajinder Singh"
2008-12-05 until 2009-02-01
Yering Station Art Gallery
Melbourne, , AU Australia

Yering Station Art Gallery in Melbourne presents "Number Trance-Face" paintings by Rajinder Singh from December 5, 2008 through February 1, 2009. Raj has been a Premiere Portfolio Artist at absolutearts.com since 2006. He comments, "My art practice has always been based on the wonder of the abstract codification of pure thought we call mathematics. I am motivated by the aesthetics of elegant mathematics now in my art as I was as a mathematician in my past. On the other hand I nurture a skeptical viewpoint on the role mathematics play as the inevitable language of choice of science and its prevalence in our lives."

Singh continues, "My art practice lies within this dialectic in the contradiction between my two conflicting viewpoints, adopted as the determining factor in their continuing interaction."

Visual artist, Rajinder Singh, lives and works in Singapore. He has been painting since an early age and won the first accolade for his work at the age of 12. Rajinder was recently selected as the top 20 emerging artists from Asia by a juried competition in Hong Kong (Tiger Translate). He will be showing in London, France, India, Malaysia, Singapore, Los Angeles, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Korea, New York and Argentina in 2008.

Rajinder has had a successful academic career with five academic degrees including a PhD in Engineering Mathematics. His background in Mathematics is the driving force behind his successful art practice. Rajinder hosts a popular Singapore art blog (http://sightoracle.blogpsot.com) which runs a commentary on the South Asia art scene with reviews, interviews and philosophical discourses and has been the unofficial site for the Singapore Biennale 2006. His work has been shown in contemporary, international art portals such as SPUNK and DUUDLE and has been described as modern and carries a message of change.
