Ashley Yeo (b. 1990, Singapore) graduated with a Master’s Degree in Fine Arts from the University of Arts London, Chelsea College of Arts, London, United Kingdom in 2012 and a B.A. in Fine Arts from the LASALLE College of the Arts, Singapore in 2011. She has participated in numerous exhibitions in Singapore, Japan, South Korea, United Kingdom, and the United States. Yeo was the first Singaporean artist to be shortlisted for the LOEWE Craft Prize, London, UK (2018). Encompassing drawings and art objects, Yeo’s practice stems from private thoughts and ontological questioning. Revolving around themes of lightness and slowness, Yeo’s practice is built upon reflections on the accumulations of hedonistic culture and alludes to the soft and fragile. Her paper sculptures explore geometry, precision, and the spiritual power of simple materials. She is currently interested in maintaining a relationship with nature. Yeo lives and works in Singapore.
Ashley Yeo will be presenting her works at Mizuma Gallery.
