Announcing Kayleigh Goh’s Exhibition “Days Being in a Soft Lullaby 子守唄のような優しい日々”

We are pleased to announce an exhibition Days Being in a Soft Lullaby 子守唄のような優しい日々 by Kayleigh Goh on October 26 (Thu) to 28 (Sat), as a result of her activity during her stay at Studio Kura.

Trained as a painter, Kayleigh Goh (b.1993) is currently an independent art practitioner based in both city of Singapore and Malaysia.
She received her BA (Fine Arts) from Singapore Lasalle College of the arts in 2016. Kayleigh has been selected as 2017 Untapped Emerging artist to showcase her work with Singapore Visual Arts Development and had her most recent show showing with Singapore Gajah Gallery.

She is interested in the psychological and poetic implication of place, a specific locale or environment that has its character on its own. With everyday construction materials as her paint and canvas, alongside with her soft palette, her works often, speak more about the quiet places.

Here are some words from the artist herself.

In Itoshima,

Of the scenery, architectures and encounters,
I felt as if I was put into a repeating Lullaby playlist

Soft and Quiet

Like a Newborn
Embarking a journey experiencing the variety of new experiences

Like a Newborn
Sprouting conscious
Learning about one’s individuality

A simple state of calm and joy.
