Ashley Yeo (b. 1990)

Ashley’s practice is founded from drawing. Her works have been reflections from the epidemics of visual culture and the complexity of human condition. They stem from private thoughts and ontological questioning. Encompassing drawings, installation, sculpture and writing, she displays and deconstructs weariness and heaviness from a modern world.

In her recent practice she considers inarticulation (the absence of conventional dialogue, the concept of a loss for words) and softness, in an effort to bring back what was becoming less visible in the human condition. Her shift to biocentrism also centers on her interest towards axiology and morality, questioning value, ethics and beauty.

Ashley’s work discusses the limitation of spoken words, underlining pain and longing within a highly dense population and its increasing reliance of technology for distractions and its results of producing disaffection, alienation and depression.
Within her art practice, she attempts to communicate and push forth kindness and equanimity, introducing lightness and encouraging slowness amidst the world of instant gratification and increasing pressure. She works within a construct of creating depth and curiosity.

Ashley completed her Masters Degree in Fine Arts at Chelsea College of Art & Design, London. She attained her BA (Hons) from LASALLE College of Arts, Singapore with first class honors. She has been the recipient of the Lasalle Award of Academic Excellence(2011), Winston Oh Travel Award(2010) and NAC scholarship (Local) in 2010. She has participated in numerous group shows in London, Singapore, Turkey, and Thailand and artist residencies with Elsewhere Museum (North Carolina, USA), Eastside (Los Angeles, USA), Vermont Studio Center (Vermont, USA) and School of Visual Arts (New York, USA).
