Baa Baa Black Sheep...
solo exhibition by Zak Yeo
13 - 29 July 2011
The larger than life paintings in Baa Baa Black Sheep… by Zak Yeo depicts character driven narratives, drawing from the artist's acutely personal memories. Through the jovial referencing of comic strips and inspired by traditional Chinese Ink paintings, poster art, and western art history, Yeo engages the viewer with his observations of the world as a strange contradictory place.
Baa Baa Black Sheep… embodies Yeo's preoccupation with the use of paint to re-invent reality through the use of a new visual language. The narrative in Yeo's artwork is presented in the form of satire, such as the gloriously colourful cattle in Baa Baa Black Sheep… that the artist has used as a modern day parable.
