On her website, Kayleigh Goh posted that she is interested in the psychological and poetic implication of place, a specific locale or environment that has a character on its own. “Looking at how places constitute different experiences and evoke different emotions, I am informed by my everyday experiences of everyday places,” she writes. “With outputting the collected information into my paintings, I turn the intangible into tangible. I see my artworks as capsules of these experiences. With everyday construction materials as my paint and canvas, alongside my soft palette, my works often speak more about the quiet places.”
Clicking on the Artworks tab on her site takes you to 3 projects. Here, Kayleigh tells us about Lost in the Midst of Time, an installation that presents the viewer with her experience and perception of the older buildings tucked within an overwhelming city environment.
“These quiet, slow-paced spaces are slowly left behind by time. Visually inspired by the cracks and peeling paint around Waterloo Centre, this painting installation incorporates construction materials and debris as both canvas and paint. Adopting the language of aging architecture, combined with a soft palette, I contemplate the impermanence of the structures around us.”
