Sand T Kalloch
Sand T Kalloch is also known as Sand T, born in Malacca, Malaysia and now resides in Malden, Massachusetts, USA. Her artistic outputs are in the form of mixed media paintings, low relief, and works on paper. She has been the recipient of numerous awards and grants for her work in the visual arts, as well for her volunteer work in art advocacy and community building. Her exhibition history is extensive with representation in numerous solo and group exhibitions in Australia, Canada, France, Malaysia, Singapore, Taiwan and the United States.
She described her works as intricate visual details that are hard to capture with any accuracy. A photograph could never do her works justice and viewers are welcome to view the original creations in person. The words fresh, pure, clean, luminous, pristine, modern, disciplined and colourful all will rush to head upon viewing Sand T’s work. Each piece is pleasing and to view the works in a series is much more engaging, enveloping and interesting. Sand T seems to attain her goal in utilising the basic elements of visual language and that is to create maximum visual impact in every single piece of her artwork.
In November 2017, Sand T has shown alongside 119 artists from the Asia region in the 1st “KL Biennale” presented by the National Visual Arts Gallery in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, the Biennale ended March 31, 2018.
