Movement and Cycles in Nature – a new exhibition by Wendy Yeo

Posted by Tenby Museum on Aug 1, 2018 Blog, Exhibition Archive No Comments

In these times of stress, of rushing to and fro like Mad Hatters, perhaps its time we took a step back and just relaxed for a few moments, balanced out our equilibrium and just enjoyed the unstoppable passing of time without worry.

What better way to do this than to come and see the new exhibition by Wendy Yeo?  Waterfalls, lily ponds, goldfish, trees, leaves, slow breaking waves, all imbue the viewer with a tremendous sense of calm and tranquility.

Wendy Yeo, R.W.S.W. is a Hong Kong born artist and graduate of the Slade School of Fine Art, University of London.

She has won many prizes and a Travelling Scholarship to Italy and Paris and attended Atelier 17 in Paris at S.W. Hayter’s etching studio.

Solo shows in the UK (including two at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford and one at Wolfson College, Oxford), New York, California, Hong Kong, Kuwait and Turkey, and a two-person show with John Piper.

She paints in watercolour and ink and also acrylics on canvas and is an elected member of the Royal Watercolour Society of Wales.

She says of her work, “I am interested at the moment in portraying movement and cycles in Nature. Having studied Traditional Chinese Painting in my youth, I like to use the Chinese brush in my painting and the oriental use of space combined with a Western individuality of expression, in both my watercolour paintings and acrylics on canvas.”

This wonderful sales exhibition Movement and Cycles in Nature is being officially opened on Friday 3 August and runs until Saturday 8 September.
