A graduate from the School of Art, Design and Media at the Nanyang Technological University,  Trivia Goh creates works that are primarily produced in charcoal. “It brings out a formal tone in my portraiture of the imaginary. I use watercolour and ink as well for quick thumb-nailing and drafts.”

Trivia’s works tend towards “the whimsical, often portraying otherworldly characters and beings as if to document them having had a place in my casual daydreaming world,” she tells Culturepush. Her work certainly taps into the world of imaginary creatures and bizarre stories within Kärsämäki’s Secret II, a series that began in a little Finnish town in March 2016.

“Following my return to Singapore, I expanded the collection to include watercolour works of these oddities in their otherworlds. The idea was to contrast the works created in a foreign land against the ones created back home to show how the environment and the experience of it affects the outcome. Each piece offers the audience a little slice of narrative that paints the trivialities in my life.”

Kärsämäki’s Secret II opens on April 6 and runs through 23 April at Utterly Art Gallery.
