A special experience took place when we attended the artists’ talk at PAMA (Peel Art Gallery Museum) to hear the Singh Twins describe their work; depths of meaning brought to the surface for the audience to absorb through the senses, first via listening to the lecture, then looking at the art via the gallery; a two-fold experience much like the artists’ themselves ~
Criticised for not being different enough, for not possessing enough individualism that markedly identifies so-called “modern art”, the Singh Twins decided to challenge this western ideal of individuality by packaging their “same-ness” as the very thing, that makes them different.
The Singh Twins Contemporary Art practice offers an international appeal exploring global culture and politics in a unique, artistically detailed, very decorative way.
An International feature exhibition at PAMA, the Singh Twins ART is a beautiful highlight to help celebrate Sikh Heritage Month during April 2016. It’s not hard to tell why their paintings are award winning as they bring to life the Indian miniature tradition through their “past-modern” art practice that coveys visuals of modern day issues such as stereotypes and view-points on heritage in today’s society.
Here are a few visuals I sourced from the public domain:
The Singh Twins have exhibited in some of Britain’s most prestigious art venues, completed numerous public commissions and are very well-known for their visual art yet, they also include illustration, writing and film-making to their body of work! If you haven’t already…GO, check out these modern day originals 😉
