We are pleased to announce an exhibition Deterge by Jolene Yeo on October 20 (Sat), 21 (Sun) and 27 (Sat), 28 (Sun), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura. This will be shown as a part of Itoshima International Art Festival 2018, Itoshima Arts Farm.
Jolene Yeo is a multi-disciplinary artist living in sunny little Singapore. Having always loved art, she has pursued and completed a Diploma in Apparel Design & Merchandising (Temasek Polytechnic), Diploma in Concept Art & Illustration (3dsense Media School) as well as Bachelor in Fine Arts (Lasalle College of the Arts). She has participated in two group exhibitions in Singapore as well as had her collection nominated for the IAF awards. She was placed in the Director’s List for 4 consecutive years in a row in Temasek Polytechnic and has been awarded Top Student by 3dsense Media School.
Here are some words from the artist herself.
Daily life is hectic and stressful, many times one can delve too deep into pressure and get consumed by negative thoughts that are toxic and mentally unhealthy. Inspired by the tranquil and serene surroundings of the Itoshima countryside as well as the spiritual support pets and animals can bring, Deterge explores the cleansing of the mind and soul in a slightly unorthodox and grisly manner.
