the burning gaze

A well spent day at the Singapore Art Museum on Christmas day. This was one of the best
exhibitions i’ve seen this year, so glad i managed to make it on the last day. For those
who’ve missed it, do check out the interview of the artist and footage of the exhibition here.

“...With Kang’s paintings, it is not the surface that matters, but the way the dramatic
images overwhelm and evoke emotional responses in the viewer through their large
scale, saturated colouring and frequent distortions of perspective...”
– excerpt from Singapore Art Museum website
