Yeoh Choo Kuan’s paintings are unapologetically gestural. They evince the type of muscular brushwork one would associate with the Abstract Expressionists: full-bodied and visceral. Choo Kuan coined the term ‘Fleshing Abstraction’ as a way of describing the bodily qualities he hopes to evoke with paint. This relationship between the physical and the psychological is carried through in the artist’s new trajectory from 2018, when he began his ‘Streaming Mountain’ trilogy. Taking his interest in Chinese landscape painting as a starting point, Choo Kuan explores personal connections with cultural identity, the natural environment and systems of belief.
