Tang Contemporary Art Bangkok is proud to announce the opening of Yeoh Choo Kuan’s solo show “Lights In”on May 5, 2018.
Yeoh Choo Kuan was born in 1988 in Malaysia. In his practice, he has created a distinctive visual language, exploring the possibilities of painting through mark-making.
"Light In" is Yeoh’s first body of work in 2018, also the first since moving into a new studio space. These landscape pieces from "Lights In" drew inspiration from the newness of his immediate surroundings.
Yeoh graduated from Kuala Lumpur Design Academy of Art. He has exhibited widely in shows since 2008 in Bangkok, Hong Kong, Singapore, the Philippines and elsewhere in Asia. His early autobiographical works illustrate the purging of unrest and hidden emotions left by traumatic experiences through mark-making on painted imageries. His approach had since shifted toward gestural abstraction with highly textured strokes, which is referred to as his self-coined “Fleshing Abstraction”- a synthesis of disintegration set in contrast as the tension and forces are weighted on the oil surfaces.
