3 decades after Professor Anne Sheppard shared that “enriching our aesthetic experience goes together with developing our powers of imagination,” the role of the artist evolved from being a technical genius to a visionary who manipulates time and space to connect us with the intangible.
As a parent, Andy Yang’s responsibilities have often rendered him ineligible for spontaneous hiatus to faraway lands where one goes into a new environment of wonder. Amidst these conditions of production, the expressionist painter revels in introspection where his mind massages his consciousness into a state of wonder. Getting lost in books rich in culture, music that is ingrained in every nerve of his impetus to paint, and a new residency that grants a newfound abode, Yang creates his own field trips. He makes drawings and sketches of scenery while travelling in them. Within the complexed layers of imagination, Yang detoured (created) into new dimensions of excursions - hideaways and sanctuaries where he takes a breather for a short moment.
Imaginary Excursions invites you to join Yang in his expedition into the wilderness. Within the collections of paintings as installation, find your safe space and listen to the heartbeat of your own fantasy.

Based in: Singapore
Andy Yang (b. 1973, Malaysia) is a visual artist based in Singapore.
Andy Yang is a multi-disciplinary artist known for his abstract visual & sound experimentations. The explorations between visual art and music led him to the creation of works under musical stimuli with The Observatory. In Anitya 1 (2011) that exposes the process of his art-making in full cycle, from creation to destruction at the Earl Lu Gallery of the Institute of Contemporary Art Singapore. And again, for the latest ArtScience Late feature, Ceremony (2019) together with SA TheCollective, the artist celebrated the experiences of human childbirth through an energetic sound performance set against an elaborate visual art installation set.
After the first few initial figurative investigations, Yang gradually moved to the abstract plane. He felt that this was the most fertile ground for his artistic research, essentially because of the freedom afforded to him in exploring colours and forms. It was not long before Yang became seduced by the flamboyancy and immense power of colours. It was as if all the power of the equatorial sun had landed on his canvases bringing to life the other colours around and beneath it. Furthermore, Yang considered the abstract more suitable to respond to his longstanding passion for music.
"Of all the arts, abstract painting is the most difficult. It demands that you know how to draw well, that you have a heightened sensitivity for composition and for colours, and that you be a true poet. This last is essential." Wassily Kandinsky
