Christine Lok, a Singapore based visual artist, arts educator, and industry professional whose visual arts practice explores the intricacies of the human condition. Through a diverse body of work, her viewers are confronted with the social, psychological, and often overlooked issues faced in everyday life.
She provide a unique and insightful look into the overlooked beauty in our daily lives. Through highlighting the subtle details of the world around us a simple beauty is revealed; the symmetry of a building, the street vendor you pass by every day, a familiar emotion expressed through abstracted line and color. The worlds she create allow the viewer to become a voyeur into lives free from societal expectations, social stigmas, and existential anxieties. Her desire for these works is to provide the viewer with a revelatory experience as they embody her perspective of what life could be.
In contrast, as she build her artistic practice, she hope to provide insight and new perspectives into deeper social issues utilizing her multidisciplinary approach. Through her art she hope to raise awareness about the prevalence of issues concerning gender, capitalism, consumption, amongst others, in our society today.
