Yen Chua’s artistic practice metaphorically celebrates women and expresses her concern for environment issues.
Yen Chua’s artistic practice metaphorically celebrates women and expresses her concern for environment issues. Her artworks echo her dreams and aspiration for a better world. Myth & Magic encompasses 8 colourful new paintings representing mythical creatures such as mermaids and unicorns. The artist mixes acrylic with charcoal, her favourite medium since her student time, to create vibrant artworks. Two exquisite drawings on paper depicting mermaids complete the exhibition. Yen wittily blurs the lines that divide the worlds of fantasy and reality and creates a new universe in which the impossible becomes possible, where dreams transcend into reality. It’s a realm in which fancy takes flight, where the whimsical and the wonderful meet. With Myth & Magic, Yen Chua invites the viewers to discover a “terraqueous” world in which the mythological, the mystical and the magical converge. / Myth & Magic runs from 19 September 2019 to 31 January 2020
