WHAT'S ON AT THE VOLVO ART LOFT

August: Happiness is a Journey – by Lim Kok Wee
A photographer by profession, Lim Kok Wee lives his passions beyond boundaries. When he is not capturing precious moments, Lim Kok Wee expands his insights through traveling. In this exhibition series, Lim Kok Wee showcases images from Padang and Cebu taken in 2009 and 2010 respectively. He visited these countries as part of Crossing Bridges, an annual photography trip which gathers South East Asia's largest photography communities.

September: Metamorphosis – by Manuel Vega (Nolet) Soliven II
For Manuel Vega (Nolet) Soliven II, becoming a visual artist was the answer to self discovery and self expression. His first step was acquiring the skills and vocabulary in painting, which culminated in a degree from the University of the Philippines, College of Fine Arts, in 1998. In 2003-2005, Manuel Vega (Nolet) Soliven II went on a study grant to the Academia di Belle Arti, Florence, Italy. This has influenced and enriched his art, evidenced from skilful figurative works, to a kaleidescope of colors in abstract. Come experience the Metamorphosis of consciousness and change through Art, in Manuel Vega (Nolet) Soliven II's third show in Singapore.

October: Intuitively Precise – by Chow Yee Ling
Yee Ling Chow is a Chinese American artist living in Singapore. Upon her return to Asia from the US, she has traveled around the region extensively, and was deeply inspired by its people, the culture, and the beauty of nature.

Having lived in Singapore since 1996, Yee Ling has been exposed to the vibrant colors of its landscape, a rich multi-cultural heritage, which reminds her of her roots, and her dreams, while awakening in her a sense of creativity and passion for art. She decided to take up futher studies at the Nanyang Academy of Fine Art, which has deepened her appreciation, allowing her to continue to pursue her journey in art.

Intuitively Precise” takes you into this journey of art, from realism to abstract, and to semi-abstract.

Yee Ling’s art works reveal a quality of free spirit, energy, and harmony. “Just like the Yin and Yang!”_______Yee Ling
