MOON BATHING : Solo Exhibition by Tony Twigg
TAKSU Singapore, 1-22 November 2012
TAKSU Singapore is honored to present Moon Bathing, the third solo exhibition by Australian artist Tony Twigg with TAKSU. Tony Twigg is well known for his found timber sculptures. Twigg has chosen a constant like the moon as his inspiration for this exhibition, a poetic anchor despite location, belief or aesthetic preference. Comprised of Twigg’s timber wall sculptures, Moon Bathing echoes the moon’s movement and shimmer, both in the surface of these paintings and their physical construction. For this solo exhibition, he will be showcasing 19 new signature timber wall sculptures.
Tony Twigg (b. 1953 in Australia) has a strong international practice with over 40 solo exhibitions presented in Australia, Malaysia, Singapore and the U.S.A. Over his long career Twigg has also been known for his multi-disciplinary and film works, included in the iconic Cannes Film Festival. He studied painting in Australia and received his Master of Visual Arts from the College of Fine Arts, Sydney in 1985. He was a recipient of Australia Council Manila Studio Grant (1996), Rimbun Dahan Malaysian residency (2005), TARP Residency TAKSU Kuala Lumpur (2009), and will travel to Beijing to complete a residency with Red Gate Gallery October 2012. Twigg’s work is held in major museum collections and in private and corporate collections across Southeast Asia and Australia. His monograph “Encountering the Object” was published in 2008.
