Featuring a selection of 25 artworks by Cheong Soo Pieng, Wong Keen and Boo Sze Yang, artcommune’s latest exhibition takes a close look at how artists interrogate, internalise and transform the values of form in the process of image-making.For artists the pursuit of pictorial aesthetics is undoubtedly bound up with the question of form, which carries not just artistic but cultural baggages; an artwork conveys itself as both an object and an objective, capable of transforming ways of seeing, feeling and understanding. By foregrounding the distinct practices of 3 important Singapore artists whose varied backgrounds and outputs of styles provide insightful points of entry and comparison, we examine how each artist’s exploration and stylisation of form necessarily reveals an ongoing dialogue between self and environment, tradition and forwardness.
