Focusing on: Ashley Yeo

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.

Ashley Yeo was the first Singaporean artist to achieve a place in the Loewe Craft Prize finals (2018), with her piece ‘Arbitrary Metrics II’.  Chosen from more than 1,900 international submissions, her small delicate paper sculpture comprises an intricate hand-cut floral motif of her own design.

    This work is exquisite and amazing. The highlighting of the shadows in the way it has been photographed is also terrific. WOW.

    That’s a person with a good eye and a very steady hand. Bet she goes through a lot of knife blades!
