Flesh Matters is the title of the latest solo exhibition by Wong Keen, touted as one of Singapore’s leading second-generation artists.
Organised by The Culture Story art salon and Artcommune Gallery, the exhibition comprises over 40 new works from Wong’s Flesh series.
According to a press release, Flesh is considered “one of the most accomplished series in Wong’s painted oeuvre over 50 years.”
The works range in medium from acrylic on canvas or paper to mixed media collage.
Among the works is Aftermath, a 6m-long painting which is said to “reveal Wong’s continual exploration of new strategies and images to relate the flesh form into his imagery.’
The works range in size from 65cm by 55cm to 300cm by 600cm and are priced from SGD25,000 to SGD380,000.
As a prelude to this exhibition, another show comprising 15 recent works on paper and entitled Lyrical Flesh, will be held at The Culture Story on June 2.
