The Artling at LIAIGRE, Singapore: A Solo Exhibition by Shih Yun YeoByIsabella Damrongkul
In collaboration with Liaigre Singapore, The Artling is thrilled to announce an exhibition by acclaimed Singaporean artist Shih Yun Yeo. Known for her reinterpretations of ink paintings and her experimental fusion of the traditional form, Shih Yun Yeo’s artworks fit harmoniously into Liaigre’s showroom interiors where her art will be the centre of any dialogue.
With Liaigre’s mission to share meaningful experiences as well as provide a meeting place for artists, collectors and private customers, Yeo’s dynamic works create a space in which the contemporary spirit thrives.
The exhibition is on view from 3 February 2022, Monday to Saturday, 10am to 7pm at Liaigre Singapore, 9 Purvis Street, 01-01.
The elegant and sophisticated Liaigre showroom perfectly features 11 paintings from Shih Yun Yeo. In her works, the artist follows her instincts when it comes to the fascinating medium of ink painting. Using a monochromatic palette along with a range of different paintbrushes, the artist experiments with different techniques. Her striking paintings are a captivating balance between the traditional and abstraction–the seamless combination of the conventional and modern elements manifested on a canvas.
Liaigre makes an impeccable host for Yeo’s contemporary abstract work. Since its creation in 1985, founded by the late famed Interior Designer, Christian Liaigre, its relationship with art and antiques has been a way to share experiences. Liaigre believes in the art of living, surrounded by architecture, furniture, art and objects. The Shih Yun Yeo exhibition is a testament to Liaigre’s exemplary clean aesthetic vocabulary and their special relationship with art and design.
