Aisha Rosli Singaporean, b. 1997
Strongly influenced by Austrian Expressionism, Aisha Rosli’s intuitive approach to painting sees these figurative manifestations that lend to her exploration of the female identity and gender relations. Alluding to secrecy and concealment, Rosli explores the ambiguity in power relations between genders, one that manifests in a subtle power play of dominance and control. This precariousness in the embodiment of power is further observed when viewing Rosli’s paintings, where viewers often find themselves implicitly placed in a position of stealing glances at these figures engaged in intimate acts.
A recent graduate from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, the artist won the second prize from the NAFA Fine Art Graduating Awards Competition in 2018. In that same year, she showcased her paintings in a group exhibition Ribut Reboot at the Sangkring Art Space, Yogyakarta. She has since participated in group exhibitions at Cuturi Gallery and Coda Culture art space in Singapore.
Following her widely received showings, Rosli will be staging her first solo presentation at Cuturi Gallery come 2021 during Singapore Art Week. Most recently, Rosli was featured in a group exhibition by Unit London, London.
