INSTINC ARTSTAGE PROJECT BOOTH
INSTINC IS EXCITED TO BE A PART OF ART STAGE SINGAPORE 2019. WE LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING YOU AT OUR BOOTH!
The works they will be featuring:
Who was the late Lee Kuan Yew? Founding father of modern Singapore? Iron-fisted
authoritarian? Internationally renowned statesman? Loving grandfather? In capturing’s Lee’s likeness through a combination of silkscreen printing and acrylic painting, Laudi Abilama charges headlong into the myth behind the man. From touches of knowing humour in a curled, pursed lip, to a furrowed brow, tight and corded with the worries of the world, Abilama’s renderings prompt deeper thought into this intriguing politician and all that he stood for.
Yeo Shih Yun(Singapore)
Singaporean artist Yeo Shih Yun’s deeply cerebral and critically-acclaimed works need little introduction. A favourite of institutions and renowned collectors, Yeo’s work in Chinese ink abstraction is as multilayered as it is accessible. In this Screenpaintings series of works, Yeo marries the techniques of screen printing and painting to create one of a kind works, inwhich the screen printing technique is re-imagined as a kind of artist’s paintbrush.
Japanese artist Chihiro Kabata creates enigmatic works which challenge and provoke the boundaries of the artist’s process. Using nothing more than a humble ballpoint pen, she creates swirls and flurries, reminiscent of delicate ink brushstrokes or the finest strands of hair. With an obsessive attention to detail and a jaw-dropping level of precision, her abstract works invite the viewer to pause, take stock and dwell on them at length, in deep contemplation.
Self-taught artist Yuuri Kabata’s artistic process is a precise, disciplined and controlled one. She assigns “fixed rules” to each painting at the outset and then executes each work in conformity to its own preset rules. Yet one would be hard-pressed to discern any hint of rigidity or constraint when viewing her works, with their seemingly free and random drips and swirls. The works have been created so that they work in combination as a quadriptych, although they work equally well as standalones and may be purchased individually.
