STATES OF CONSCIOUSNESS : EARLY WORKS OF SUN YU-LI

Current Exhibition - Artesan@Esplanade

Exhibition Dates : 20 January - 16 February, 2021

in conjunction with Singapore Art Week (SAW)

“ Different people view and interpret art differently. To me, I find the hidden veins of thought that lie behind art intriguing - and then they merit unraveling…“  

- Sun Yu-li

Sun Yu-li is best known for his iconic public sculptures throughout Singapore’s landscape which include Abundance II(1995) located at Suntec City, the famous illusion of a monumental bronze ring; Land Before Time (1998) displaying a towering string of figures at the frontage of The Paragon on Orchard Road, Window of Hope (2010) in Collyer Quay, and of course Family (2018) at KK Women’s & Children’s Hospital, are amongst many others.

One would characterize Sun Yu-li as the quintessential Renaissance man who has celebrated several years of success as a public sculptor. Yet while Sun Yu-li is widely recognized as a sculptor, States of Consciousness: Early Works of Sun Yu-li inaugurates the first of a series of exhibitions, highlighting his not so familiar medium on canvas and paper. The paintings contribute to chronicle and map his early artistic practice, reflecting the dawn into his complex, underlying theories and methodologies that embody his art. 

 

Artesan Gallery + Studio opens 2021 with a wistful yearning to recall our own uniqueness by presenting a master artist whose works are omnipresent throughout Singapore’s landscape -  that is, the works of venerable artist and sculptor Sun Yu-li.  More excitingly, the gallery is exhibiting for the first time, canvas and paper works by the respected artist whose works take on a far more amorphous characteristic than his previous art forms – a timely reflection of the uncertainties we experience during these times.
Exhibition dates : January 20 - February 16, 2021

The Gallery was extremely professional in their dealings and recommended some artists so I picked up a few pieces. For example not only did I love owning a Ventura, they also all turned out to be exceptional investment pieces. I would recommend Artesan to anyone

looking to buy Asian contemporary art.
