Exploring new ways to ‘read the city’, Terence draws the viewer into a world of ongoing equilibrium, juxtaposing old with new urban structures, streetscapes and human activites. Nothing in his artworks keeps still, always in a state of flux, mirroring the interconnected, ever changing surroundings that we experience everyday, hence establishes a link between the landscape’s reality and that imagined.
Emphasising on aesthetics, he focuses on the idea of ‘public space’ and more specifically on the idea that beauty exists everywhere, if you just take a moment, you can enjoy the space that we all conveniently overlook in our hectic daily lives. The results are reconstructed to the extent that meaning is shifted and possible interpretation becomes multifaceted.
His works urges us to renegotiate photography as being part of a reactive medium or merely an instrument of recording. Rather than presenting a factual reality, an illusion is created to conjure the realms of our imagination which is always in a state of flux.
Terence continues to add to his FLUX series with his distinctive laymography style into 2 broad categories, Garden of Eden collection (themed on his home country SIngapore) and a World Cities collection (themed on his personal travels around the world).
