This exhibition showcases three distinct series: New monoprints by local artist Justin Lee, New works on paper by local artist Shih Yun Yeo and their recent collaboration series on paper and canvases “CryptoFlora” created in 2023.
Embark on a journey into the world of art and the blossoming blockchain with the CryptoFlora Collaboration Art Series, created by Justin Lee and Yeo Shih Yun. Inspired by the concept of Crypto Flora, where blockchain technology flourishes, they invite you to witness the convergence of art and innovation.

In this collaboration, Shih Yun's contemporary design sensibilities harmoniously blend with Lee's iconic style, resulting in a unique fusion of modern and traditional influences. Together, they explore objective and non-representational art, showcasing their combined expertise as both designers and artists.

Inspired by the Chinese proverb '不以规则,不能成方圆' , the new series ‘Without rules, there are no Boundaries.’ monoprints by Justin Lee delves into the interplay of lines, shapes, colors, and gestural marks, transcending the confines of visual reality. Each abstract, organic form within the series serves as a vessel for evocative narratives; perhaps resembling a rugged rock face or emanating the vibrant energy of transformation.

As Justin Lee navigates the digital age, his practice is a testament to both devotion and conflict. While he ardently engages in the act of creation, seeking to communicate through the language of dots, lines, and shapes, there exists a profound struggle between pleasure and discord. This tension, inherent in his process, defies complete articulation through conventional language, inviting viewers to embark on a journey of interpretation and introspection.

In her old studio at Herencia in 2022, Shih Yun bids farewell to a chapter of her creative journey with the completion of her quadriptych series, “ Infinite Green’. Executed in her signature bold and dynamic style, these pieces pulsate with energy, capturing the essence of movement with every brushstroke. Through the juxtaposition of tradition and innovation, Shih Yun invites viewers to contemplate the rich tapestry of artistic expression, finding beauty in both the understated elegance of her ink paintings and the vibrant intensity of her quadriptych.

In November 2023, Yeo Shih Yun embarked on a three-week retreat to the tranquil landscapes of Itoshima, Japan. Amidst this serene backdrop, she meticulously crafted a series of works on paper, each stroke a testament to her profound admiration for the timeless interplay of ink and paper. With a restrained palette and humble brushes, she explored the delicate balance between simplicity and complexity, infusing each piece with a sense of meditative tranquility.

In both series, Shih Yun's artistic vision shines through, transcending mere visual representation to evoke a profound sense of emotion and contemplation.
