The Serene Path: Singaporean ink artist Oh Chai Hoo
Why We Recommend it
‘The Serene Path’ chronicles Oh’s deep respect for Nature, in particular, geology and the passing of time in a series that consists of fourteen new vertical and horizontal ink paintings on rice paper scrolls.
Oh is a multi-disciplinary artist whose career spans thirty years, having been discovered as a gifted painter at the age of fifteen by Goh Sing Hooi, the pioneering Singaporean watercolourist.
Oh established his own painting language and aesthetic, which bridged traditional and contemporary art forms. His mixed media works combine metal foils, acrylic paint, sand with his simplified, yet incisive ink work.
In recent years, Oh’s oeuvre has expanded to include ceramic sculptures and seal carvings with
a focus on a new series of paintings using solely ink.
