The works of renowned Singapore abstract painter, Wong Keen, will be exhibited at The Substation Gallery to raise funds for The Substation. The works are owned by a group of art collectors who have come together in support of the arts centre.
The Substation’s Fundraising Exhibition will feature 28 works by the artist, who is widely recognised as the first Singapore artist to make forays into Abstract Expressionism. The paintings on show will cover Wong’s artistic practice that spans over 50 years, ranging from early abstract Chinese ink expressions, to mixed media compositions in the 1990s, to his long standing explorations of nude and lotus themes. His works are widely sought after, and reside in the collections of the Singapore Art Museum, Fullerton Hotel, and Resort World Sentosa amongst others.
Emily Hoe, General Manager of The Substation, says, “The Substation is proud to exhibit the works of one of Singapore’s most dynamic and distinctive artists. We are grateful to the collectors who have banded together in support of The Substation. Their contribution will allow The Substation to continue its work as a developmental space for local and emerging artists in Singapore to explore the boundaries of their practice.”
