ALONE BUT NOT LONELY by Yeo Kaa

Yavuz Gallery is proud to present Filipino artist Yeo Kaa in ALONE BUT NOT LONELY, her first solo exhibition in Singapore.

The collection of new works by Yeo Kaa in ALONE BUT NOT LONELY asserts independence and fulfillment from solitary life, dealing with the theme of cherishing moments of being alone and seeking happiness and comfort by one’s self. The other side to attachment or commitment in relationships, as well as being in the company of crowds, is implied in the works: the loss of personal space and freedom, and a feeling of unfamiliarity towards one’s own being. Here, the absence of companionship unexpectedly becomes a productive state, one that leads to self-discovery, empowerment, and the appreciation for the simple joys of life.

These musings are related in vibrantly composed scenes and tableaux with the recurring figure of a big-eyed girl, a familiar image in most of her paintings. While this character can be thought of as an extension of the artist’s personality, it can also be an anonymous figure which lends itself to the representation of anyone who identifies with the sentiments, fears, worries and anxieties the artist often purges in her works.
