Tiffany Loy is a Singaporean textile artist, trained in industrial design in Singapore, and textile-weaving in Kyoto. Loy graduated from the Royal College of Art with an MA in Textiles, specialising in weaving, and was a recipient of the DesignSingapore Scholarship.

Since the start of her practice in 2014, Loy’s experimental works have been exhibited internationally, at venues such as Singapore Art Museum, Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art, and La Triennale di Milano.

Loy’s background in product and textile design has led to her unique approach in creating materials with minute details, while keeping in mind their impact in the spatial context.

Employing a weaver’s approach to sculpture, Loy explores fundamental relationships between elements of materiality such as colour, structure, and tension. Minuscule details invite viewers to take a closer look and indulge in the act of observing.
