Singapore gallery One East Asia is delighted to be mounting its latest exhibition Peninsular Practices: New Faces of Realism in Contemporary Southeast Asian Art at the Redfern Gallery as part of Asian Art in London 2015.

About

This is the fourth consecutive year in which One East Asia has participated in the multi-venue event celebrating Asian art, and its eighth exhibition in London.

  One East Asia is showing work by Malaysian artists Ahmad Zakii Anwar, Jalaini Abu Hassan and Chang Fee Ming; Singaporeans Jimmy Ong and Teng Nee Cheong; Jayson Cortez, Andres Barrioquinto and Mark Lewis Higgins from the Philippines; and Japanese artist Mai Miyake.

The exhibition highlights the many ways in which the human form can be used as a means of examining the notion of ‘realism . This variously encapsulates philosophical arguments about the nature of reality, ways of seeing and the archetypal form. The theme also includes the ‘face – in both its human form and in its linguistic use as a way of describing something that is presented to the outside world: the face may appear very lifelike but it is not necessarily honest; it may not be visible; and it may not be in an human incarnation at all.
