Boo Sze Yang: The Mirage features over 25 canvas and paper works from the veteran artist’s latest series of paintings. His new work draws inspiration from the recurrent web of construction sites scattered across Singapore and employs linear perspective prominent in Renaissance art to suggest space and structure within an imaginary landscape. The artist’s monochromatic handling of linear structures resembling scaffoldings, partitions and platforms are created through the delicate process of pulling and pushing wet paints across the canvas with a squeegee. The illusory imagery sits on the edge of recognition and abstraction, where meaning is constantly shifting and reading multifaceted.
