THE HUMAN FORM | 人的自然形态
a solo exhibition by the winner of Penang Art District Spotlight 2018 Yap Ley Min
YAP LEY MIN
Born in Butterworth Penang, 21 years old artist Ley Min aspires to become a full-time artist, allowing her to constantly discover the unknown possibility of arts as it gives her the sense of freedom, stimulation and happiness.
Graduated from Equator College in 2018, this will be her first solo exhibition as a new, up and coming artist. Her works are inspired by her observations of past incidents which she finds fun and intriguing. She hopes to spread and share the beauty of natural morphology and the emotions of humankind through her visual expressions.
This exhibition will showcase 15 of her new and old works. Each artwork is connected to another, recording the milestones of growth in their creation. This exhibition includes works from different mediums, including oil painting, acrylic, pastel, mixed media and wax carving; and also feature trials of larger artworks. Ley Min is currently experimenting different styles to enhance new and fresh ideas, so there will be no two of the same.
The Natural Human Form
I take pleasure in observing the interactions between humans when they are in their most natural and raw form – exploring their emotions and physical movement in various life scenarios, be it a perilous state or cherishing moment; allowing us to see the beautiful and the ugly part of the world.
For instance, when a situation occurs, the atmosphere at that point time will either be tensed or happy. I use my memory to record my impressions of the scene that I find intriguing and the emotions I have at that very moment, and bring them into play through my artworks.
