Statement:

Amy Goh is a Singapore-risen artist and weaver of worlds specializing in black and white illustrations in the surrealistic and sublime vein. Her ink-layered illustrations stitch together an encyclopedic visual repository wherein she scrutinizes and navigates memories, dreams, and the nebulous crevices of the mind. Amy is currently based in Montreal where she is masquerading under the cover of a normal human mask while actively exploring the potential for cross-medial artistic collaboration. She invites the larger world to give her plenty of commissions

She is represented within North America by Coatcheck Gallery.

A History:

  Amy Goh was nourished on mouldy stories swept ashore from the moody seas of Singapore. She once believed, as a child, that she was not fully human but was, in actual fact, a cat changeling. She also believed that she could turn invisible and thought the landscape of her house a mythic playground populated by non-existent beings, so this should not be entirely surprising. 


  Having found herself unexpectedly grown up, she continues to subsist on dreamscapes unearthed from the debris of her constantly convoluted mind. She is afraid, deathly, of the dams of her imagination bursting; as such, she wishes she could manufacture numerous doppelgangers to help her conceive the millions of entities populating her skull. She works a number of official jobs under the pretense of being a research assistant while secretly acting as secret agent to an underground network of indigenous mice. While she is not writing papers, she draws (rabidly) seascapes of forgotten cities with the inky secretions of her pen (which she often thinks of as a 4th limb).


  Amy dreams of winding corridors and cellars filled with wood-scented shadows. She adores brie cheese, soya milk, life sipped in a dew the colour of chardonnay, and sometimes, she likes to harbour grey daydreams of taking over the world.
