Tony Khoo Exhibition
14 October 2022 - 16 October 2022
With a trusty Canon in hand, alternately with an iPhone, YeeLek Khoo has captured everyday accessible moments one would ordinarily neglect.
Maybe his long years in the world of business, furious and frenzied, had spurred him to find joy and purpose in the simple and tranquil. Sans any technical training, he has harnessed his intuition for swiftly taking pictures of things that are already artful in their simplicity, symmetry, even awkwardness. All these, plus the organic play of light and shadow, fascinate him: it’s raging silence. The world stops, then a profound energy follows, as he peeks into the lens.
“Silence seems to be a common thread in my work. Silence beckons me to listen in.
Then unravels things beyond the apparent. “Traces” is my continuous exploration with the nature of silence, with spirituality and self in the mix. There are unexplored realm,
especially related to nature. Nature reveals its beauty in an abstract and yet personal way. And they affect me in all their stillness, in their complexity, in their abstractions.”
Tony will be on site at Black Kettle 12pm to 3pm daily.
