Richard Koh Fine Art (RKFA) is pleased to announce Wah Nu’s (b.1977, Myanmar) solo exhibition. Clouds is scheduled to run from 3rd – 25th April 2020 at Richard Koh Fine Art Singapore, Blk 47 Malan Road, #01-26 Gillman Barracks, Singapore 109444. The artist will present eleven acrylic on canvas paintings.
Taking pause from the humdrum of metropolitan life, the artist intends for the viewer to be present in a particular given moment. Clouds is made up of a series of striking, visually arresting cloud paintings which entertain and evoke speculation simultaneously. Wah Nu’s choice of clouds as a subject matter stemmed from a need to unwind and detach from the endless tasks on life’s to-do list. Craving a certain carefree mindfulness while painting led her to desire the same for viewers of her work – enjoying unabashedly, with no other motive or agenda.
The Clouds series are composed of large paintings, with a vibrant choice of colour scheme. Pictorial and colour composition lend their strengths in tying the paintings together. A sense of playfulness and dream-like quality allows for the viewer’s thoughts to meander without qualms, to wander into their own realms of imagination. Wah Nu’s assertion of painting being a form of play is further explored as she tries to play “within a narrow frame, with the least possible tension.”
