About Sand T's work
“Sand T Kalloch‘s work feels quiet and still while at the same time is full of life and movement. The surfaces are pristine and glossy yet each piece is so textural and luminous. The layers of graphite and the bubbles (resin droplets) add different layers and levels of complexity to each piece. The work invokes investigation from different views and angles. It makes your senses react, you wonder if you hear the air bubbles moving, breathing. Sand’s work appears grid-like and systematic, yet each work is so individual. As clean and sharp as the paintings appear there is a very emotional quality to them, as one can literally see their reflection in the work and also lose oneself in it."

Commissioned Project: Marina One in Singapore
This February, I had a chance to see my recent commissioned project at Marina One in Singapore, finally. This extensive wall installation is comprised of 80 panels of the 36x36 inch low relief (paintings) that span over 230 feet on two curved walls. It is the largest and longest permanent installation in Singapore and has been open to the public since January 15, 2018. I stayed in Singapore for 21 days to oversee the installation in Sept 2017. It was a wonderful experience working with the Singapore team on this project. I didn't get a chance to see the whole installation when I was there simply because each panel was immediately covered with protective cover as soon as we installed one. I was so thrilled to see the installation in person for the very first time this February.
