Malaysian artist Hoe Say Yong has spent the past two decades exploring water reflections and the ability to transform, conceal and reflect. In his recent REFLECTIONS exhibition, Say Yong expertly portrayed water reflections on oil on canvas.  For this exhibition,  Say Yong will present a new perspective to appreciate the vastness and infinite nature of water.  

Li Dezhuang, a Singaporean artist who is currently based in Shanghai, won the UOB Painting of the Year (Chinese Painting Category) runner-up prize in 1984. He has spent more than two decades specialising in the contemporary art of chinese ink painting. For this exhibition,  Dezhuang will showcase landscape  and cityscape paintings executed in Chinese ink and characterised by elements of swiftness of thought and execution, economy of language and eloquence of expression.  

Lim Tiong Ghee is one of Singapore's foremost Collage Abstractionist having clinched top prizes in the UOB Painting of the Year Competition in 1984 and 1989. He is a self-taught artist and he has refined his technique over the past 26 years. Landscape and tropical flora is a recurring theme in Tiong Ghee's works. For this exhibition, Tiong Ghee will present abstract collages of the enigmatic Bohdi Tree, which inspired in him a curious mixture of tranquility, carefree joy and melancholy.

Thomas Yeo is a 2nd generation Singaporean artist and a Cultural Medallion winner. He is renowned for his forceful and energetic abstract landscape paintings and he has been described as Singapore's pioneering abstract artist. For this exhibition, Thomas will present new works from the "Spawning series" which he showcased in his 41st solo exhibition in 2009. His inspiration for the pieces came from a documentary on the majestic whales. Thomas will also present abstract gouache landscape pieces depicting the ethereal nature of clouds.
