About Artist

andy-yang

Andy Yang was born in Malaysia in 1973. He is a multi-disciplinary artist known for his abstract visual and sound experimentations. His explorations between visual art and music led him to the creation of works under musical stimuli with The Observatory. In Anitya 1 (2011) at the Earl Lu Gallery of the Institute of Contemporary Art Singapore, the process of his art-making cycle was exposed in full, from the point of creation to destruction.

In his latest ArtScience Late feature at the ArtScience Museum, the work Ceremony (2019) produced together with SAtheCollective, saw the artist celebrate the experiences of human childbirth through an energetic sound performance set against an elaborate visual art installation. Yang was also one of the key artists (in a select group of eight) who presented DE:VOTED (2020) a critically acclaimed immersive art experience at Helutrans for Singapore Art Week 2020 — one which featured an intense communion with light, sound, and performance art.

After the first few initial figurative investigations, Yang gradually moved to the abstract plane. He felt that this was the most fertile ground for his artistic research, essentially because of the freedom afforded to him in exploring colours and forms. It was not long before Yang became seduced by the flamboyancy and immense power of the colour gold. It was as if all the power of the equatorial sun had landed on his canvases bringing to life the other colours around and beneath it. Furthermore, Yang considered the abstract more suitable to respond to his longstanding passion for music.
