There is just something magical about oil paints. The chromatic, tonal intensity and the satin finish are simply remarkable. It’s just plain sexy if you ask me. The way the surface responds to the brushes and painting knives. From the lightest to the most intense of marks. Sometimes I just sit alone in long periods of time staring at the paintings. Inspecting the surface like a mad man obsessed with his lover. Just staring at the marks, surface reliefs that were made and the coloured pigments. And, of course, the aroma of linseed oil which I like. Just can’t believe that this medium has been used by artists since the 15th century. It went through so many art movements. Almost without fail, every generation would mention that painting is dead in every way but it is still widely used till today.

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
