About the Exhibition
Random Starts

While the three artists' works are ultimately different in styles, what ties them together is their working method in starting a painting. Each begins with a completely spontaneous and random brushstroke, with no preconceived plan of what is to come next.

For instance, Valerie Ng, whose works are characterized by thick oil strokes, starts with a palette knife to mark her first stroke. Wyn-Lyn Tan, whose acrylic paintings are at once lyrical and strong, begins each painting with a wash of black strokes. Yeo Shih Yun's minimalist works plays on space and is often defined by the first bold ink stroke.

This first mark on the canvas or paper provides each artist with a visual 'lead' on which to work on. From there, each artist is propelled by a mix of spontaneous energy, instinct and intuition that carries through till the painting feels complete.

In this exhibition, the works will comprise of abstract paintings in oils, acrylic and ink on canvas and paper and will be of varying sizes.
You are cordially invited to our opening on 10th Jan, Thurs at 630pm at The Art Loft (Volvo Showroom - SM Motors)
