Painting takes us on a journey through space and time; the paintings of Yen Phang take us deeper into the fantastic voyage of the human anatomy. Inspired by the 1966 movie and Isaac Asimov’s book of the same name, Phang’s new series of paintings takes us in to explore the physiological structure and psychological subterrain of the body.
In this era of high-speed travel and instant connectivity, travelling into the body is an idea that would be out of this world. The ease with which we surrender to technology and the urge to explore outer space leads us ironically to be more dependent on machines and neglect the human body. Phang reminds us that the human race needs to look to ourselves. The human body is a well-oiled machine. Its ability to rejuvenate itself is a process that still intrigues doctors and scientists.
This is Phang’s last exhibition before his voyage to the chilly terrains of Canadian winter. This leave of absence from the tropics allows the body and the mind to rejuvenate, just as Phang is asking his audience to step back and take stock of our physical and mental states.
