Encompassing drawings and art objects, Ashley Yeo’s practice stems from private thoughts and ontological questioning. She is interested in maintaining a relationship with nature. Her practice revolves around themes of lightness and slowness, beautifully portrayed both through her drawings and her intricate paper-cuts.
