Following her instincts about the fascinating medium, Yeo Shih Yun decided to explore ink painting further at the San Francisco Art Institute. Using a monochromatic palette and a range of different paintbrushes, she experimented with several techniques. The artist’s earliest works, perhaps unintentionally, showcase a captivating balance between the traditional method of Chinese Ink Painting and abstraction - the interplay of conventional and modern elements that broadly defines her body of works until today.
