Born in Singapore in 1936, Thomas Yeo was schooled at NAFA between 1958 and 1960. He subsequently furthered his artistic pursuits in London at the Chelsea School of Art and the Hammersmith College of Art & Architecture. In 1984, for his valuable contributions to art and culture in Singapore, Thomas Yeo was conferred the republic’s highest honour in that arena, the Cultural Medallion. Contrasting Images traces the development and change of the artist’s work in the last nine years. The works are presented under three categories: abstracts, landscapes, and a series of “heads and faces”. This exhibition records a journey of frustration and pleasant surprises in a contemporary language.
