“Ink on paper is one of civilisation’s oldest artistic media, emerging in China over two millennia ago. In recent decades, as social and economic change engulfed China and globalisation popularised alternative expressive techniques, Western styles have increasingly been embraced by the country’s artists, with ink and its aesthetic eclipsed in the process. As a result of this challenge, artists working with ink are actively renewing their medium while others seek new voice for its aesthetic. Yeo Shih Yun—whose acrylics are inspired by the ink tradition—discusses the ancient medium and her faith in its ability to move forward expressively and conceptually.” - Kelley Cheng
