“Inner Reflection” is the third solo exhibition by emerging Singaporean artist Ieo Gek Ching from 18 January – 30 March, 2018. Inspired by Greek mythology, the exhibition features Gek Ching’s latest seventeen drawings of her hybrid animals, including her classic series from 2013 – 2014; contemporary and vibrant series from 2014 – 2017.
A meticulous visionary, Gek Ching builds a mysterious hybrid creature universe. Partially adopting Egyptian’s frontalism figurative position, Gek Ching’s hybrid animals are usually depicted from a side view, with a portrait of one animal, bird feathers and strong horse-like legs. Using techniques of ball pen drawing without sketch base and paper collages, Gek Ching’s hybrids appear real yet convey a sense of mythology, solemnness and uncertainty. Her immersive realms seem to live on beyond her hybrids immediate visual impression – an inner reflection of her understanding on the beauty of nature and its functionality.
