18 – 29 October 2000
DP Space, #04-100 Marina Square Singapore
Hong Kong- born Cheung Yee, a renowned sculptor and painter now residing in the U.S, is famous for being the first Chinese sculptor to create a modernised adaptation of ancient Chinese elements, inspired from western art forms, and presenting his intriguing, new-world take on Asian ancestral cultural codes to a Western audience.
Cheung Yee will be showcasing a new collection of 21 paper casts, including a range of smaller sculptures never viewed before by his Singapore audience. Cheung Yee’s quintessential tortoise motif is a primary form in his creations; however, in this exhibition one can discern that the structure of Chinese geomancy is also a strong feature in his artworks. Consistently obtaining ideas from ancient Chinese beliefs, the I-Ching for example, Cheung Yee never ceases to analyse the infinite, multifaceted characteristics contained within Chinese philosophy, gaining inspiration from the same source whilst conjuring novel interpretations and experimenting with different models for every new task embarked upon.
The Art of Cheung Yee can be viewed at DP Space, Marina Square till October 29. All the works are for sale. For further information please contact iPRECIATION at +65 6339 0678 or firstname.lastname@example.org
