While you gear up for the big end of the year party, here are some art exhibitions to help you maintain your connection to the world and your own internal universe!
Interwoven Terrains – Yau Bee Ling
Her fourth solo exhibition in her 25-year career as a full-time artist, Malaysian painter Yau Bee Ling documents a map of her inner soul, of mental and physical shifts she has experienced thus far. Interwoven Terrains collectively showcases her turning points in life, and the universes each moment has created. Radiating strong and positive energy, her pieces are to encourage and open your senses of space and time while still relating to natural creation and her own emotions as a person, a woman, a mother, and an artist.

Planet Shangri-La – Justin Lim
Presenting 12 new paintings of the acrylic medium, artist Justin Lim continues delving into the various depictions of Utopia throughout history and art to create pieces centred around the human psyche and social history. His keen sensitivity of colour brings the Eastern and Western depictions of paradise to new heights, and his sense of melancholy in depicting landscapes untouched by man helps us imagine what a world that is non-human-infested could look like.
