Like Real (Let's Pretend that It's a Self-Portrait)

This painting is part of a series, “Continuum (Automatic Itineraries)” investigates the body not merely as a vessel for existence and consciousness, but also as a destination and a site of tension between competing meanings.

“Continuum” is an attempt at “knowing thyself”, or at least our physical selves, in a time when the rationalist quest for scientific understanding of the body becomes a substitute for actual bodily experience.

This series aims to pull back our understandings of body-concepts to a more visceral, phenomenological plane. It treads the borders of abstraction and surrealism (a constant theme that underlines Phang’s work) to upend conventional representations of our physical being.
