Kayleigh Goh Biography

Kayleigh Goh is a Singapore-based, Malaysian artist who is viewed as one of the most reflective and innovative young artists in the region. Inspired by the psychological and poetic implications of place, her works explore how different spaces can evoke distinct emotions.

Working predominately with the mediums of cement and wood, Kayleigh creates metaphysical spaces that offer us a temporary escape from the bustle of everyday life. She uses these materials to rebuild imagined safe spaces that offer an escape from the abundance of noise pervading our everyday, external lives.

Kayleigh explores the materiality of architectural structures by juxtaposing everyday materials of cement and wood in her canvases. Cement is a material which usually holds negative connotations, such as coldness and a lack of emotion, yet here offset with the warmth of the wood to create a dissonant, yet comfortable sense of harmony. In her work, Kayleigh protests against these notions, instead embracing these quiet, familiar spaces as places of 'solitude' — the modern city as a space for healing, a home, and a place to rest.

Kayleigh held her first solo show with Gajah in September 2018, and was recently selected as 1 of 5 artists commissioned by the National Arts Council, Singapore to create a large site-specific work as part of the national public arts project Placing Home: Woodlands. Since then, her works have been exhibited across Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Australia, South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, France and the United States.
