Mike Singe

Singe utilises readily available utilitarian products as the primary material for his intricate constructions.

About

Born in Perth Western Australia, Mike Singe received a Bachelor of Fine Art from Curtin University in 1990 and established a prominent profile within the Perth art community before moving to Tasmania in 2009. His work is represented in major institutions including the Art Gallery of Western Australia, Murdoch University, Curtin University and the Kerry Stokes Collection. Singe has also been the recipient of multiple development grants through ArtsWA.

In 2009 he was awarded an Australian Postgraduate Award to undertake his Master of Fine Arts at the Tasmanian School of Art. The focus of this research, completed in 2011, into the shifting human behaviour and cultural systems in response to the climate change debate continues to inform his practice. In his predominately sculptural practice Singe utilises readily available utilitarian products as the primary material for his intricate constructions. Each product is specifically selected for its conceptual links to the subject of the sculpture, rather than its apparent ease of manipulation. This approach results in some inventive and unique works.
