Artist Bio: Deusa Blümke

Born in Brazil and graduating with Masters in Fine Arts from LASALLE College of the Arts in 2016, Blümke exhibits in Singapore and internationally. Her work was invited by the Brazilian Ambassador to Singapore to inaugurate the first solo show of the Brazilian Cultural Centre, at the Brazilian Embassy. Amongst other showcases, her work has been exhibited at ION Art Gallery, Substation Gallery, LASALLE College of the Arts, Praxis Gallery, the Jakarta Arts Centre, and Maya Gallery.

Blümke’s works are primarily paintings dealing with form, expressive lines, and colors. She is often inspired by material manipulation and the unconscious mind, with an interest in how art can become a bridge between the artist, the viewer, and the active use of the moment.

Artist Bio: Hélène Le Chatelier

Hélène Le Chatelier studied art in Paris at l’Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts Appliqués et des Métiers d’Art, Olivier de Serres, where she specialized in Fresco painting. Since her first painting exhibition in Paris in 1997 soon after her graduation, Hélène embraced various artistic modes of expression (painting, sculpture, photography, installation, writing).

Working mainly in black and white, Hélène questions all aspects of memory, the idea of the passage of time, and the traces it leaves on our bodies and in our lives. She interrogates the secret and unconscious parts of ourselves, as well as the way we attempt reconciliation of our collective and family histories with our individual memory.

Hélène currently lives and works in Singapore. Her work has been showcased in Singapore, Bangkok, Paris, Seattle and New York. She has private and corporate collectors all over the world.
