On 16 December, Young Soy Gallery will proudly present “Flesh and Bones,” an exhibition featuring the works of Benson Koo, Richard Phipson, and Alyssa Tang.
These three artists explore themes that relate to the human body, and what lies beyond. Tang’s works focus on the exploration of the body, and highlight the beauty found in its forms, colours, and textures. Koo focuses on eerie, skeletal figures as a means of self-reflection. Lastly, Phipsons’s works, although predominantly abstract, feature a skull motif to signify our mortality, and the unseen that exists within all of us.
Even though the works by these three artists come together harmoniously, much of the allure lies in the unseen. This “unseen” is constructed of the artists’ ideology, and each of their respective creative processes of what they are trying to communicate while simultaneously veiling motives so that the viewers can participate with their own interpretations.

Why the strange spelling? Well, Localiiz is designed to be your “local eyes”—and for that, you need two i’s.
