Yeo Workshop presents an series of paintings by artist Wong Lip Chin from 2013 at Crane Club Joo Chiat, the neighborhood described by the Business Times Singapore (BT Lifestyle) as a thriving F&B enclave and a gentrifying hip neighborhood.
Stolen Moments revisits an earlier series of paintings from 2013 that took Wong an extended period of time to complete; the artist suffered from anxieties of choosing career in the arts, and after months of soul searching to rediscover his artistic voice. These works offer an almost diaristic glimpse of the artist’s mental universe at that stage in his life while reflecting on how his stylistic language has developed and evolved from his first solo exhibition in the early days ‘Now You See Me’ in 2009. This pictorial style reminiscent of Pop Art and comic books continue to inform his practice today, as one is able to draw resonances between the works here and his most recent paintings at Yeo Workshop’s main gallery in Gillman Barracks.
