Shaun-Joel Liew (b. 1990), a multidisciplinary artist with bodies of work that mainly includes celluloid 35mm and 120mm photography with experimental darkroom image processing, as well as new media installations and painting on the sideline.
His current body of work, Imago Lucis Opera Expressa, deals with abstract notions of time, duration and the perception of the photographic imagery. Using canopies of trees and branches as his preferred subject metaphor of time and photography, he creates images with a specific silver halide emulsion on homogeneous stone tiles. The non-narrative, sometimes abstract images bare a sense of ephemerality yet perpetuality on the viewer's perception and/or conception.
Shaun-Joel also works with other alchemic processes in the darkroom like silver gelatin printing, cyanotypes and more recently, salt prints with citric acid on paper. He remains true to his anachronistic practice of film photography and darkroom processing as it pushes him to be evermore exploratory in creating unorthodoxly and de facto imageries.
