Mizuma Gallery is pleased to announce Gentle Daylight, a solo exhibition of Singaporean artist Ashley Yeo.

Working with colours in her new sculptures, Ashley Yeo continues to develop the paper cuts in pursuit of elegance through materials and techniques. With subtle colours and new textures, she displays energy latent in structures to create forms without force. Creating new aesthetics encounters through the use of simple materials and craftsmanship, the works are informed by reflections on nature and hedonistic culture.

The common understanding of the characteristics of paper as material speaks to a precious fragility identified in smallness and lightness— generating an experience of slowness built up by delicate structures and visual textures. Yeo’s paper sculptures find meaning through transference and allude to the soft and fragile.

Gentle Daylight aims to offer a distillation of an abstract, generalized vulnerability to the audience, presenting delicate works of deep simplicity in tandem with the kind of space it inhabits, through labour and objects. From the inherent spirituality of simple materials, the paper sculptures settle in silence and space.
