Angela Tam’s second solo exhibition ‘Unidentified Terrain’ breaks new ground as she explores traditional Chinese ink practices with her persistent journey through spiritual growth. Each piece is a meditation created with intuitive certainty, where black and white space maps the topologies of her subconscious landscape.

INFORMATION

“The lines I create are inspired by the flow of energy that is found in complete presence, where dialogue between stillness and movement exists as subtle vibration”. Each stroke is a breath into a new dimension, formed precisely through repetition and the mastering of her innate, instinctual play. Intrigued by the tension of shadow and light, each composition unravels a new layer uncovering stories within her past. Angela expresses herself through pure psychic automatism, a technique coined by the Surrealists to describe the performance of the subconscious mind onto paper. Angela Tam’s ‘Unidentified Terrain’ seeks to express the underlying conversations between the physical and spiritual and the empowering rise of the inner child surrendering to the Unknown.

Artist Bio:

Angela Tam is a Chinese-Australian artist who creates to understand and grasp the intangible. Her practice is of an interdisciplinary nature, where mark-making and line work become portals into the subconscious and transient realms. She often brings together observation, curiosity and intuition as a way to navigate this space, translating it from her perspective into the physical. Angela Tam was born in Sydney in 1994. She has a Bachelor of Design in Visual Communications from UTS (University of Technology Sydney). She had her first solo show in 2016 and has participated in group shows around the city.
