FOST Gallery is delighted to present 1998, featuring the early works of Ian Woo leading up to his first Exhibition solo show at LASALLE Gallery in 2000.
The idea stemmed from a conversation between Woo and the artist Sherman Mern Tat Sam over an early painting, Finger food (1998), which Woo chanced upon in the midst of a studio renovation. Looking at the painting, Woo found himself intrigued by the idea that he was both a stranger and a friend to the work and his younger self. Moves, he thought, that have been forgotten, colours that now seem unusual in its pairings; more important is the almost flat ground relation to the appearance of a sequence of things, hovering, never quite congealing as form.
