Boo Sze Yang: The Father

$20.00

Published on the occasion of ‘The Father’, a solo exhibition of works by Boo Sze Yang.

Published, designed and edited by iPRECIATION.

Description

The Father is a series of oil paintings by renowned Singaporean artist Boo Sze Yang. The series feature 16 portraitures of Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew through his entire political career, and attempts to uncover the complexities of his cult of personality and open up discourse regarding the legacy of LKY. The works presented are unique to Boo’s oeuvre of works, as this series is one of his few that features a human subject matter almost exclusively. By using a distinct brush work reminiscent of those found in his previous Cathedral and The Mall series, Boo constructed images of Lee Kuan Yew as perceived through media outlets, presenting with dignity a man who was pivotal to Singapore’s development.

The catalog is accompanied by an essay by the curator, Seng Yu Jin.
