Ritual - Sam Yong Solo Exhibition

Sam Yong’s solo exhibition Ritual, explores rituals of human life through use of images from the natural world as allegory. Yong’s latest body of work, Ritual, is a series of narratives which draw from the rituals of human life: birth, consumption, courtship, mating, death and grief. Yong presents these themes through traditional painting and drawing techniques, paired with subject matter from the natural world as allegory. Hidden meanings and layered themes begin to emerge beyond the initial viewing and resonate with the audience while still seeming unfamiliar.

Opening reception: Saturday, May 6, from 6-9pm. Free entry. This exhibit will coincide with Gerard Geer's solo exhibition, Chimaephera. Both artists will be in attendance.

Both exhibitions run from May 7 to May 28.
