Yeo Tze Yang – ‘TRUTH BE TOLD: Recent thotz abt painting ppl’

21 May – 23 July 2022

FOST Gallery, Singapore

FOST Gallery is delighted to announce a solo exhibition by Yeo Tze Yang, featuring 17 works on paper Exhibition and 20 paintings made in the last two years. ‘TRUTH BE TOLD: Recent thotz abt painting ppl’ marks the tenth year of the self-taught painter’s professional art practice whereupon he reflects candidly on the beginnings of his artistic journey, as well as a review of where he stands at this very moment.

Like the ironic main title of the exhibition, the semi-standardised abbreviations of “thoughts”, “about” and “people” in the sub-title convey the same tongue-in-cheek humour. It references “textisms”, spelling conventions used in SMS text messaging; the quintessential form of communication today. The “textisms” belie the fact that the people and places depicted in Tze Yang’s paintings are the antithesis of the glamourous (often fabricated) lives people tend to post on social media. The dishonesty in the sub-title continues since the paintings in the exhibition are not just about people, there are paintings of animals and objects.
