Sea-slab (Tight Bed)

Born in 1977 in Singapore, Jeremy Sharma graduated with a Master of Arts in fine art from Lasalle College of the Arts in 2006. Sharma works primarily as a painter but his body of work also encompasses video, photography, drawing and installation. In 2010, he participated in the 14th Asian Art Biennale in Bangladesh, and in 2011, on top of holding his first solo exhibition in Singapore, he took part in a number of group exhibitions in Singapore and Tokyo.Inspired by a view of the sea while on a trip to Venice, Sharma conceived The Massive series which is a crystallization of abstraction and figuration, a process he calls subtraction. Employing unconventional painting techniques that involve stamping, scraping, smearing, bandaging, at once destroying the pristine canvas and creating unusual surfaces, Sharma produced ‘Sea-slab (Tight Bed)’ as part of the series during his master’s course.
