Malaysian artist Yuet Yean Teo and six other artists featured in a 'pop up' exhibition of paintings in London's Notting Hill 23-25 March 2012.
Pop Up will transform a residential home into a temporary exhibition space for three days to showcase the work of Tooney Phillips, Rakerman, Harriet Porter, Tahnee Lonsdale, Ernest Zacharevic, Jemima Burrell and Yuet Yean Teo.
Yuet Yean Teo says her work, much of which is monochrome, is informed and inspired by urban landscapes. "I explore light and shadow, employing structures or compositions in interior and exterior spaces," says Yuet Yean Teo. "I am particularly fascinated by both natural and unnatural light. From my personal point of view, light is a symbol of hope and shadow is replete with mystery."
Light and shadow are also important in her thought processes, says the artist, who resides in London.
A recurring subject matter in her works is images of tunnels, alleys and rivers, all of which feature darkness and luminosity.
"Through my work I seek an opportunity to offer the viewer a feeling of mystery and melancholy but I also hope viewers will make other associations and find other meanings," Yuet Yean Teo says. SR
