In Transition: Between Two Worlds features three artists of different generations known for working between modes of abstraction and figuration in painting, each with a unique visual vocabulary and aesthetic that well reflects the zeitgeist of contemporary life. The showcase, which features around 20 paintings, is on view at artcommune gallery from 10 to 31 August 2021.
Colour is a point of investigation for Choy Weng Yang and his paintings are characterised by several distinct phases of transition through impressionism, abstraction, colour interaction and abstract impressionism. Boo Sze Yang’s approach to paintings is distinctive in its loose, gestural technique and use of a restrained palette to create images that evoke moments of memories that reside in the in-between zone of the real and the utopia. Raymond Yap’s work entails a reimagining of the environment, exploring the relationship of time and space, and how these elements excavate each other through lines, movement, and colour.
For these artists, the process of painting is intuitive and accidental in many ways. It is a journey without a destination; the artist delves deep into the unconscious, making discoveries by getting lost and allowing the process to dictate the outcome. Each painting is an encounter with the unforeseeable and a multitude of possibilities where imagination is the only horizon.
