Richard Koh Fine Art (RKFA) is pleased to announce two solo exhibitions of Malaysian artists, Yeoh Choo Kuan (b. 1988) and Zac Lee (b. 1968). The exhibitions are titled What Makes A Mountain and Another Day respectively. They are scheduled to run from 7 – 19 January 2023 at Richard Koh Fine Art Singapore, Blk 47 Malan Road, #01-26 Gillman Barracks, Singapore 109444.
In What Makes A Mountain, Yeoh Choo Kuan explores "Shan Shui", branching from his Streaming Mountain series where his 'paint streaming' technique is employed as the element of "Shui" (water). The individual paintings are configured in an assorted format which are then placed in varying heights. The variation of heights mimic the layers and rhythm of mountain ridges, aligning with the idea of "Shan" (mountain). Through the process of paint dripping from different directions, the various gestures allow Yeoh the freedom to create and experience dynamics within each scene. To him, the process of making art and a mountain are the same, both challenge one's perspective in understanding things differently and one must endure trials for things to be made right.
