I started work on this painting sometime in the second half of 2019. It started off as an idea I jotted down on my sketchbook. I remember very clearly that I sketched the idea down at a Japanese izakaya after observing a few oddly stacked Japanese ceramic bowls. Laid down the shape and indigo base colours. Left it for a few months because I thought it was going nowhere. Then, one fine morning in 2020. I decided to have another go at it and it surpassed my own expectations. So, here it is.

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
