Jendala Visual Arts Space, Esplanade, Singapore
With “Waterfall,” Yeo Shih Yun wanted to extend the limitations of ink painting - to go beyond the typical Chinese waterfall landscape painting confined to the four sides of the rice paper. In this site-specific installation, a three-dimensional space is created using two-dimensional, painted scrolls.
These scroll paintings are not created by any brush, but by dipping the paper rolls in different shades of ink. “Time” become the artist’s brush, determining how much ink the paper absorbed and the way the ink flowed.
