Alpana Vij is a Singapore-based contemporary artist. Her practice employs painting, found objects, photography and video to explore themes of perception and what constitutes ‘objective reality’. She is inspired by the Buddhist concept of śūnyatā, or emptiness, that focuses on the transitory and ephemeral nature and interconnectedness of all phenomena. She seeks to use her ritualised and meditative art making as a reflexive process to question and understand these teachings and to create immersive experiences that poetically engage the viewer in a dialogue.
Alpana graduated with a BFA from College of Art, New Delhi and received an MAFA from LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore. She is also deeply involved in bringing art to the community and has initiated and participated in various projects in Singapore and India.
Alpana has shown her works at several solo and group shows. Her works are in private collections in Singapore, the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia and India.
