Yeoh Choo Kuan

b. 1988, Malaysia
Lives and works in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Yeo Choo Kuan’s practice articulates the tension between a spiritual élan and the magnetism of desire, violence and the flesh. The natural landscape and the overload of information are extremes of a spectrum he embraces and represents in all its contradictions. With abstract painting as a strong foundation, he has in the latest years transcended into the conceptual realm of installation. His explorations of different artistic domains meet a sheer enjoyment of textures, mark making, and disintegration of the pictorial matter.

The biographical, psychological and emotional element is always his point of departure, leading then into visual reflections on our shared socio-political realm. Solo exhibitions include: Today’s Special (2020), Richard Koh Fine Art Singapore; Streaming Mountain (2019), Richard Koh Fine Art Singapore; Lights In (2018), Tang Contemporary Art, Bangkok; Live Leak (2017), Richard Koh Fine Art Malaysia; Private Sentiment (2012), House of Matahati, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
