Say it Like You Mean It

This body of work is concerned with the inability of articulation and comprehension. The works aim to reflect on, and capture feelings of tension and frustration akin to having a word on the tip of your tongue and being unable to deliver it, or understanding something only for it to be fleeting and out of your grasp once again. The work suspends and holds this liminal space; a space before comprehension and articulation is finally (if ever) achieved.

Dead Mans Wheel

The conflict that arises when a wall is created continues to inform my art.  The relationship between materials and process is always my starting point. I create a wheel thrown, functional vessel which I then challenge and manipulate.  The end result is a new artwork but one that remains embedded in this original narrative. 

Yi Pei Loh

The Fictional Days

Yi Pei Loh’s art explores the intervention of his imagination into everyday life experiences and surroundings. He depicts imaginary cityscapes and distorted nature, showing the interplay between the real and fictional world. By illustrating the unreal, he believes that fiction can inspire and explore how we experience the everyday lives. Executed with Chinese ink and watercolour on paper, the works reflect different aspects of contemporary life and culture. The works have stories to tell but, at the same time, aim to inspire audience generate their own.
