Introduction

Born in 1987, Luke Heng graduated with honors from Lassale College, Singapore (in partnership with Goldsmith College, London). In Paris, in 2014, he participated in the artist residency program of the Dena Foundation chaired by Giuliana Setari and supported by Singapore National Council of the Arts.
Luke Heng spent his childhood in a Chinese herbal medicine, and was first inspired by this traditional pharmacology, both in his Ying-Yang philosophy of seeking harmony, and for these pigment extraction processes that he composes himself. Initially, his way of painting was repetitive, he could create up to twenty layers for a white fund, thus approaching ritual and meditative movements. He experiments with the purely formal qualities of painting and seeks to push its limits in the context of the speed of images of the contemporary world. His work has been the subject of several exhibitions, notably at the Pearl Lam gallery in Singapore or at the Isabelle Gounod gallery in Paris.

" Being an artist, as far as I’m concerned, stems from my interest in the practice and the very subject of painting: light, construction, its extension both in space and in the field of discussion. The definition of art is so vast! For me it is to bond with people at different levels, to make people think, to show things from an unusual angle. And that art, through the questioning it provokes, finds an echo in others. And then as with human relations, sometimes it works in a fairly obvious or immediate way, sometimes it takes more time. (laughs) [...] "
