James Seet – Wobbly Sabi

Richard Koh Fine Art (RKFA-KL) is pleased to announce Malaysian artist James Seet’s (b. 1970) solo exhibition in Malaysia. Wobbly Sabi is scheduled to run from 17 Sep – 3 Oct 2020 at Richard Koh Fine Art, No. 34-1, Jalan Telawi 2, Bangsar Baru, 59100 Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The artist will present 18 new ceramic pieces in his 2nd solo exhibition with Richard Koh Fine Art.

In Wobbly Sabi, Seet draws inspiration from the traditional Japanese aesthetics of wabi-sabi, a world view centred on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The works in the show exude roughness, simplicity, modesty and most importantly, they come together as a homage to the ingenuous integrity of clay, and as a medium of contemplation for the artist. As stated by Seet, “I worked with it up to a point and then, let go, inviting it to shape itself to reveal a far more compelling aesthetic truth than I ever could.” Rather than striving for perfection, Seet allows the natural forces of gravity and time to shape and finalize the clay, consciously aware of the necessary limited intervention of the artist’s hand. This 2nd solo exhibition marks an important juncture in Seet’s artistic journey as he journeys away from preconceived notions of beauty and commercial perfection of form.
