Tung Yue Nang: Life

artcommune gallery is pleased to present Life by veteran artist Tung Yue Nang. Tung (b. 1959, Singapore) has secured a reputation, over the past decade, as an accomplished draughtsman and ink painter with a recognisable landscape style that is stupendously rich in detail yet delicately poetic in its espousal of Chinese ink-and-brush aesthetic. However, Photography, as much as painting, has been a constant in Tung’s life as an artist. In the period of 2000s, the passion he reserved for photography even took precedence over painting and he devoted well over a decade to mostly travelling and developing a body of photographic work.

Life is Tung Yue Nang’s first solo photography exhibition and focuses on an aspect of his work that is less well known and exposed to the public. This curated showcase of 60 photograph prints at artcommune gallery features locales and topics spanning 6 countries – China, India, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and Singapore. While these works constitute but a fraction of Tung’s dedicated engagement with the medium, they bring to sharp focus some classically human themes that have always preoccupied him – beauty in the mundane, family bonds, the interior lives of ordinary people, old-world values in a changing society, childhood innocence, the resilience of life, and the quest for spirituality.
