INKPULSE charts Yeo Shih Yun’s artistic journey from 2000 until 2017, from her budding years falling in love with Chinese ink, diving headfirst into Abstract Expressionism and Rothko to her eventual founding of INSTINC and experiments and collaborations on local shore.
With an ink-based, East-meets-West aesthetic—influenced by the tutelage of eminent painter Chua Ek Kay—Yeo Shih Yun pursues new depths within the realm of Abstract Expressionism, mixing means, mediums and collaborators.
This publication is presented as a progressive catalogue of Yeo Shih Yun’s art works over the years, interspersed with accounts by the people she has met along the way—gallerists, curators, friends and fellow artists alike. It is only through reading their essays does the chaos emerge into order, with the randomness of collective memories offering new angles, multi-layered dimensions and deeper connecting vibrations to Shih Yun’s art.

• Mr. Koh Seow Chuan – Chairman of Singapore Visual Arts Cluster
