Sand T Kalloch
Sand T Kalloch is a Malaysian-born internationally acclaimed artist based in Malden, Massachusetts, USA. She takes a simplifying approach towards creating her mixed media works with the primary intention to utilize six basic elements of visual language: dot, line, surface, color, form, and light. The resulting product possesses a sense of limitless discovery. Concepts of time, space, and certain mesmerizing energy of rhythm are contained in the pieces.
“Lines and Droplets” series is an interplay of lines, layers of resin, and resin droplets that create a shallow 3-D effect. The resin droplets are to simultaneously distort and magnify the lines as well as to reflect the surrounding light source. When moving from one side of the artwork to the other, one will witness a sequence of animated illuminations: ever-changing reflections seemingly project both into and out of the work. Sand T received her MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts at Tufts University in Boston, Massachusetts.
Sand T’s has exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Australia, Canada, France, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan, and the United States. In November 2017, Sand T was among 119 artists invited to exhibit in the 1st “KL Biennale” presented by the National Visual Arts Gallery in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
