Art Projects is delighted to present Singapore artist Wong Shih Yaw's first Hong Kong solo exhibition titled "Eleven Stories".

An established artist in Singapore, with an artistic career that exceeds more than twenty decades to date, Wong’s latest series works is a contemplative reflection of his philosophical and spiritual journey thus far, stories told through eleven acrylic paintings.

While each of the eleven paintings was created from the artist's personal experiences, they tell the story of human’s constant search for answers to life’s questions. In his distinct painting style featuring strong outlines and bold brush strokes, Wong’s works convey strength and a sense of vitality that is balanced by the mysterious dark undertones that he had chosen for this series of introspective works.

Imageries of surrealistic subjects, often in the hybrid forms of the lamb, machine and human, together with the cryptic texts, offer clues to the artist's inner message of his works, while allowing for personal interpretation. In their pensive expressions, each of the eleven works allows the viewer the opportunity to re-adapt the narrative to the individual’s unique storyline.

Based in Singapore, Wong Shih Yaw (b. 1967) graduated with a Diploma in Fine Arts (Painting) from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts in 1989. Since 1987, he has held many group and solo exhibitions. His works are collected by The Singapore Art Museum, United Overseas Bank, Art Patron Mr. Koh Seow Chuan and other private collectors in Singapore and overseas.

藝途畫廊有幸展出新加坡藝術家黃士耀於香港的首度個展——《十一個故事 》。

黃氏從事藝術創作逾二十年,在新加坡享負盛名。這次,他在新系列作品中以當代手法反映自己至今在哲理上及靈性上的探究,用十一幅壓克力畫來訴說他的故事。

這十一幅畫作的創作靈感來自黃氏作為藝術家的個人經驗;它們亦描繪了人類的求解慾,一生無止境地探討着生命中的各種疑問。他的作品擁有着獨特的風格,強烈的線條及大胆粗厚的筆觸尤其突出,表達着一種力量和生氣,又以一抹帶有神秘感的暗色調來作平衡,構成這富有深意的系列。

超現實的主題、幻想中的羊與機械與人類的混合體、隱晦的字句,這些都提示着黃氏在其作品中隱含的訊息,同時亦為各人的個人理解作了留白。觀者可以從這十一幅畫作以及那些沉思的神情之中獲得不同的訊息,再代入自己的經歷,得出獨一無二的故事。

黃士耀生於1967年,1989年於南洋藝術學院畢業並取得藝術(油畫)文憑,現駐於新加坡。他自1987年便舉辦並參與過多個個展和聯展,作品獲新加坡美術館、大華銀行有限公司、藝術收藏家許少全先生及其他新加坡和海外私人收藏家收藏。
