Post-Museum is pleased to present the first solo exhibition of Arnewaty, the result of our two-month local artist residency programme.

Beyond Realm – The ‘Pelagic’ Series will showcase paintings, which contain the behaviour of environmental characteristics found in the pelagic zone. With reference from observing weather changes and studying thermocline environment, Arnewaty created mysterious spaces, which serves and aims to evoke organic phenomenon in her paintings.

Arnewaty perceived organic phenomenon as an enigma in pelagic landscape, which can be understood as a realm between tangible and the real. It is a realm that embodies unclassified mysteries and registers the tyranny of logics. Audience will discover familiar forms, which could relate to the thermocline environment and yet at the same time, might discover peculiarities about the ‘landscape’ in the paintings. She uses brush marks as means to consider the ‘nature of reality’ and believes that the approach of ‘free forming’ brush marks and creating accidental spaces in paintings can form imagery representations.

Beyond Realm – The Pelagic Series’ paintings are characterized by free-flowing lines, which provides a sense of movement and rhythm. Distances created in between gestural brush marks varied in between each other, resulted into rhythmatic movement. Diffusion of brush marks can caused irregularity, thus the structure of the composition gradually shifted from being ‘fine to coarse’ and from sparsely to highly saturated, causing variety in space and depth. Colour defines the composition among the rendered brush marks and performs as an agent to evoke organic phenomenon in the paintings. Arnewaty hopes to create an abyss of space that can engage and conjure imagery visualizations into the audience visual experience.

Arnewaty is a graduate from LASALLE College of the Arts (Open University Programme) in 2008. She had completed her Bachelor of Arts (Painting) and was a recipient of The Goh Chok Tong Youth Promise Award in 2007 and Winston Oh Travelogue Award in 2006. She has participated in several exhibitions such as Singapore Art Exhibition (Under Open Section), Singapore Contemporary Young Artists Exhibition and Wrestling [a travel exhibition at Taksu Singapore and Malaysia], Rhythm and Groove with ARTSINGAPORE’07 @ Ministry of Sound, Fibre and Form at Eagles Eye Art Gallery and 1 x 1 x 1 Exhibition at Fost Gallery.
