by Zen Teh
Zen Teh’s art practice is shaped primarily by her proficiency in photography and painting, alongside her continual investigation into the interdisciplinary studies of the interaction between nature and human behaviour. Situations where Man and Nature collide are highlighted in her body of works – each presenting a circumstance for the joint reaction of man and the environment. Zen graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Art, Design, Media, majoring in Photography and Digital Imaging from Nanyang Technological University, Singapore. Aside from her artistic practise, Zen serves as a visual arts educator at School of the Arts (SOTA), in the Media Arts Department. Her solo exhibitions include Vestiges: Tracing Urban-nature, Alliance Française de Singapour, Singapore (2017), and Sensing States: Healing Spaces, Art Science Museum, Singapore (2015). Zen has also exhibited regionally in Thailand, Taiwan and, China, as well as participated as an invited guest speaker at regional environmental conferences such as ASEAN Powershift 2015 and Hanoi Innovation Week 2016 on Sustainability. She has also been awarded the winning title for the 7th France+Singapore Photographic Arts Award. Zen lives and works in Singapore.
