胡耀光簡介

1967年生於新加坡,1991年入讀新加坡南洋藝術學院。1995年至2006年間,先於英國溫徹斯特藝術學院獲得歐洲美術碩士學位,再於澳洲墨爾本皇家理工大學修畢藝術創作博士學位。

胡氏作品以繪畫自身的力量,探索各種表現形式。繪畫作為自省式語言,為對偶發性與空間轉換的尋找合適概念,都是胡氏創作的關注所在。

近年個人展覽有新加坡小山登美夫畫廊How I Forgot to be Happy (2013年) 和新加坡當代藝術學院 Ian Woo: A Review 1995–2011 (2011年)。聯展包括新加坡美術館Panorama: Recent Art from Contemporary Asia (2012年)、新加坡當代藝術學院Encounter: The Royal Academy in Asia (2012年)、香港交易廣場中央大廳《傑出亞洲藝術獎入圍作品展》(2010年)。

胡氏作品獲各地機構收藏,包括荷蘭銀行、新加坡美術館、新加坡總統府、新加坡國家美術館、瑞銀集團、美國Mint工藝設計博物館等等。

胡氏作品近期亦獲選刊於 英國Phaidon出2013年版的Art Cities of the Future: 21st Century Avant-Gardes。

Born in Singapore in 1967, Ian Woo began his studies at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (Singapore) in 1991. Between 1995 and 2006, he received a Masters in European Fine Art at the Winchester School of Art (UK) and a research practice DFA with RMIT University (Australia).

Woo’s works are characterised by an interest in painting’s inherent ability to suggest modes of representation. Painting and drawing as a reflexive language, ideas pertaining to the incidental and that of spatial change are pivotal influences to his practice. 

Recent solo exhibitions include How I Forgot to be Happy at Tomio Koyama Gallery Singapore (2013) and Ian Woo: A Review 1995 – 2011 at the Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore (2011). Recent group shows include Panorama: Recent Art From Contemporary Asia at the Singapore Art Museum (2012), Encounter: The Royal Academy in Asia at the Institute of Contemporary Arts Singapore (2012), and Sovereign Asian Art Prize Exhibition at The Rotunda, Exchange Square, Hong Kong (2010). 

His works are in the collection of major institutions such as ABN AMRO, Singapore Art Museum, The Istana Singapore, The National Art Gallery Singapore, UBS, and the Mint Museum of Craft & Design, USA.

Woo’s paintings were recently featured in the publication Art of the New Cities: 21st Century Avant-Gardes, published by Phaidon 2013.
