The work of this young artist is in constant evolution, by experimenting and pushing boundaries of her own artistic expression. Each canvas is a testimony of our current times and humanistic feelings. Every geometric shape, and choice of colour is an interpretation of our society. The titles are often winks to the audience. It is meant for those who question their journeys.
Beyond the emotional narrative of her paintings, the work of Delphine is visually striking. The composition and the choice of colours is extremely researched. Warm or cool colours are constantly battling to provide the audience with a sense of visual equilibrium, her shapes are on a quest for perfection, yet upon a closer look, one can see the irregularities of the medium. This provides a sense of materiality to her paintings.
Delphine Rama was born in Liege, Belgium in 1988. She now lives and works in Singapore. After studying architecture, she obtained a Fine Arts degree from the Académie Royale des Beaux Arts. Her work has been exhibited internationally.
Her geometrical forms, inspired by her love of architecture remain, but one can clearly see a shift towards a more existential exploration of the self. Destruction and reconstruction of rules and our ideals.
ANTINODES : SAW SINGAPORE ART WEEK
A N T I N O D E S is a visual art exhibition that presents the progressions of urban art styles in Singapore as artists encounter the waves of changes resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Banding together to debut new works and narratives, seven multi-hyphenate artists - Kiat, KRINGE, Didier ‘Jaba’ Mathieu, triumvirate Metamo Industries and Delphine Rama, emerge with new perspectives on the way they create and think about their very own artmaking, paving the way for new transformational paths for their multivarious practices that span several disciplines.
This interdisciplinary exhibition maps the connections between these artists from diverse backgrounds, and in a refreshing take, encompasses within their works street culture, music, architecture, technology, fashion and spirituality.
The artists explore the fantasy and free-spirited feeling of nature in an enclosed environment. Exploring from within the wildness of nature through organic materials and artistic practices genuinely and playfully reinvented. Ceramic art, engraved leather, ink abstract art and collages are dialoguing and revealing dream paths through the vision of artists from different backgrounds.
Cuturi gallery is proud to present a duo exhibition, Quantum Supremacy, by painter, Delphine Rama (b. 1988, Belgian) and internationally renowned mural artist, Didier JABA Mathieu (b. 1974, Colombian). The exhibition comprises 15 artworks that provoke the viewer to question this piece of technology that plays a vital role in the construction of the social perception. The works are conceived in a spatio-temporal language that narrate and give form to what differentiates man from computers.
SALON DES INFLUENCEURS
Gathering contemporary artists from Europe and Southeast Asia, this exhibition examines the enduring legacy of Modern Art on artists and their practice today. Under the overhanging influence of former masters who, like father figures, can be both instructive and overbearing, how do artists today assert their individuality while remaining rooted in the heritage of the art world?
THE CALL FOR THE SEA
When we are unsure of what’s happening to the world around us, we look towards other sources for some sort of confirmation. Be it through the daily news reporting or simply using social media to be updated of events, we are bombarded with information from everywhere and oftentimes we do not have the time or even energy to process these surging emotions that spawn out from this newfound knowledge. Art then becomes pivotal in helping us to comprehend these difficult times. In a series of artwork curated by Marina Oechsner de Coninck, 12 female artists are invited to share their experimental stories during the Circuit Breaker earlier this year. From paints to sculptures, The Call Of The Sea is an initiatory exploration into the creative process of these artists as they use multidisciplinary practices to actualise these contemplative and raw art pieces.
Below is an exclusive interview with the exhibition’s curator, Marina Oechsner de Coninck on The Call Of The Sea.
THE THIRD FORCE
We are delighted to present Delphine Rama’s first solo exhibition at Cuturi Gallery: The Third Force. The work of this young Belgian artist is constantly evolving, as she experiments and pushes the boundaries of her own artistic expression. For this exhibition, Delphine explores the human psychology and the uniqueness of the individual through challenges.
Cuturi Gallery is delighted to present its first group exhibition in its brand-new home at 61 Aliwal Street. The new gallery is nestled in a conservation shophouse of 400 sqm, standing in Singapore’s vibrant arts and cultural precinct of Bras Basah.Bugis, home to a myriad of independent art spaces and museums. Spread across three levels, the ground floor is dedicated to the gallery’s exhibition spaces, with the remaining levels housing multi-functional art spaces.
