The Effusion Artists present EFFUSION, their inaugural group exhibition showcasing over 30 paintings and mixed media works by artists working in the realm of abstract art.
What will be seen in this show are unusual interpretations of the artists' personal reflections and observations of their living environment, interactions with their art, states of consciousness, inner selves, and their life journeys. Apart from using traditional paint brushes and mediums, artists used unconventional paraphernalia to create their works including parking coupons, nettings, windscreen wipers, and scrapers.
Works by Guest-of-Honour, award winning artist Mr Boo Sze Yang and fine arts lecturer Raymond Yap will also be featured. Most artworks are available for sale.
About Effusion Artists
The Effusion Artists collective is an eclectic group of 7 women and 1 man who attended the one-year NAFA Western Abstract Painting certificate course in January 2016 under award winning artist and fine arts lecturer, Raymond Yap. These budding abstract artists are mostly working professionals by day and manic painters by night. They hail from 5 countries – Brazil, India, Malaysia, Singapore, and the United Kingdom.
After completing their course, a pact was formed to keep painting abstract art and the collective of 8 met regularly to paint and share their ideas. Raymond Yap nudged, pushed, and cajoled them into exhibiting their works. So, for the past 6 months, this abstract art collective has spent countless hours (and lost much sleep) painting together and painting solo to create the Effusion exhibition. The result is a 'never seen before' collection of effusive abstract art.
