The Fullerton Hotel 1 Fullerton Square #01-10 Singapore 049178
“The Art of Cheung Yee” – his second solo exhibition in Singapore in two years – will feature about 20 cast paper works produced by Cheung Yee over the last three years. Cheung Yee’s bronze sculptures from the 1990s will also be on display, to provide a more holistic view of his portfolio. The sculptures – all unique one-cast pieces – have been exhibited previously in the Hong Kong Museum of Art, Taipei Fine Arts Museum, and Taiwan Museum of Art, Tai Chung.
Cheung Yee’s distinctive style is inspired by ancient cultural elements of prehistoric China, using modern art forms to express his work in beautiful abstract forms and lines. Prevalent in his works is the use of the tortoise shell motif. This is based on the tradition in ancient China of telling fortunes using the tortoise shell. Incense burnt onto the shell and the way it cracked was believed to answer questions about the future. Thus, besides creating an intriguing visual impact, his art allows the viewer to gain a glimpse of the multifaceted aspects intrinsic of ancient Chinese culture. It is with great pride that iPRECIATION Fine Arts present some of his latest works at our new gallery at the Fullerton Hotel.
