Contemporary Asian Landscapes
by Chan Hampe Galleries Raffles Hotel Arcade
Location: EY Art Gallery
Artist(s): GROUP SHOW
Date: 15 Jul - 26 Nov 2015

EY Asean Art Outreach is delighted to present Contemporary Asian Landscapes, a solo exhibition by Malaysian-born, Singapore-based artist, Chankerk. Held at the EY Art Gallery, the exhibition marks the 19th edition of its art programme. A portion of the proceeds from artwork sales will go towards benefitting charitable causes.

Chankerk's urban scenes of our cosmpolitan city depict sites of cultural and historic interest. The city is presented in a state of flux, shown from inclined planes and with quick, disjointed brushstrokes. The paintings evoke a sense of dislocation and uncertainty, reflecting the tension that exists between the past and the present in Singapore and its evolving geographic landscape and social climate. 

Chankerk travels beyond the local landscape and expands this series with works presenting far-flung Asian locales: Bali (Indonesia), Osaka (Japan), and Siem Reap (Cambodia). With energetic and spontaneous brushstrokes, Chankerk unravels the unique character of each environment. Through their distorted perspectives, exaggerated scales, montaged arrangements and disarrangements, Chankerk’s works are Expressionist depictions of worlds as they are felt rather than seen.
