In this article Lien Devos meticulously examines aspects of Tan’s work to argue that his art defies categorization as modernist or postmodernist. Devos’s discussion brings to light the originality of Tan’s art as she examines his grand narrative and use of symbolism as examples of modernist aesthetics, as well as his use of postmodernist devices.
