Like a funnel, Singaporean artist Andre Tan acts as a filter to channel multiple disparate images from all that he sees around him into singular visions upon canvas. Cartoon superheroes, advertising copy and real-life photographs are distilled into attention-grabbing tableaux of the bold and the beautiful,which function as eye-catching retablos for the worship of mass consumption and popular culture. The irony is not lost on the artist, but his purpose is not so much critique as creative composition: he appropriates images randomly and reinterpretes them using his own colours and aesthetics.He blurs the boudaries between reality and the unreality project projected by the mass culture and questions our negotiation of self- identity in the context of a mass- media economy that remain largely driven by Western culture.
