Ay Tjoe Christine wins the Prudential Eye Award

Ay Tjoe Christine wins the Prudential Eye Award

Ota Fine Arts Singapore congratulates Ay Tjoe Christine on winning the Prudential Eye Award for "Best Emerging Artist Using Painting". Launched in 2014, the prestigious annual Awards recognises the best emerging Asian contemporary artists as well as the leading exhibitions, galleries, institutions and art critics working to promote Asian contemporary art. Works by Ay Tjoe are currently on exhibition at ArtScience Museum, as part of Prudential Singapore Eye till 31 March 2015. The works are also featured in a limited edition publication by Skira.

Born in Bandung, Indonesia in 1973, Ay Tjoe Christine is arguably the most prominent living female artist in Indonesia today. She explores a range of styles and media from paintings with oil bars, soft sculptures to experimental installations. Her work both invokes and transgresses religious themes and cultural taboos originating from her Catholic upbringing with its traditional Indonesian values. Ay Tjoe has participated in "Indonesian Eye" at the Saatchi Gallery (2011), and has held a solo exhibition at Hermès Foundation for The Third Floor Hermes Gallery in Singapore (2011). She was nominated as a finalist in "The Asia Pacific Breweries Foundation Signature Art Prize 2011 Finalists Exhibition" at the Singapore Art Museum (2012). Her debut solo exhibition in Japan was held at Ota Fine Arts, Tokyo in September 2013.
