Computational Portraits Visually Translate a State of Limbo

Originally from Singapore and currently studying at the Rhode Island School of Design, artist Andre Wee constructs figurative and metaphoric representations of limbo in his series titled Forming and Fragmenting. The artist interprets this collection of work as “An experience of being of two different states at the same time and yet, not belonging to either” and refers to the subjects’ disposition as being in “an eternal state of transition.” It is unclear whether his geometric renderings are regenerating their human form or disintegrating into nothingness. This duality of existence and disappearance is the foundation of Wee’s exemplary visual definition of being stuck in limbo.

Wee is currently working on creating a Tumblr account and establishing an online store to purchase prints of his art. The digital artist and illustrator has just launched his blog where you can keep up to date on the artist’s progress and work.
