Betty Susiarjo is a mixed-media artist based in Singapore, whose work engages concepts of temporality, materiality and beauty. She received her MA (Fine Arts) with Distinction from Winchester School of Art, England and her BA (Fine Arts) from Surrey Institute of Arts and Design, England.
Inspired by observations and experiences of the everyday, her works seek for an awareness of a moment presented in a particular time and space, thus providing a poetic realm for contemplation. Recently, she has been interested in the study of light and shadow and how their qualities and connotations affect our encounter with beauty. Employing some element of craft to her work, she juxtaposes methods such as sewing, embroidery, beading etc. to create visual sensations that lie between the perceptible and the illusioned.
