Keng Lye’s exhibition “Alive Without Breath II: Creature Comforts” is currently on show at K+ Curatorial Space, from 15th January until 29th February, 2016.
In this second exhibition at K+ Curatorial Space, Keng Lye takes us deeper into a world of aquatic creatures created with just paint and resin. It all started in 2011 when a friend showed him a video of Japanese artist Riusuke Fukahori creating his signature paintings of goldfish in resin. He then threw Keng Lye a challenge: to try and recreate the hyperrealistic resin art. In the years since, Keng Lye has not only tried his hand at painting on layers of resin, he also constantly experiments with new ways to make his works ever more realistic and three-dimensional.
“Alive Without Breath II: Creature Comforts” also sees Keng Lye collaborating with Hong Kong ceramic artist Johnson Tsang, who was invited to exhibit at K+ last August.
