Robots and Paintings

In a studio converted from a rice warehouse with the spectacular view of the rice fields and the mountains, village life was a refreshing change from the urban cityscape of Singapore. Studio Kura, Itoshima inspired Yeo Shih Yun to use found objects as well as non-traditional painting tools like robots and remote-controlled toy cars.

The main intention of using these non-traditional tools is to surrender control and to release drawing from its enslavement by the artist’s hand.
