Energy is something we so often take for granted. We fail to recognise its vital importance and its necessary presence. Without energy, there is nothing, there will be nothing. Energy and consciousness are all-pervading. We are spiritual beings having a human experience and to be able to function and engage in the modus operandi of this world, energy is indispensable. Absolutely paramount. The 20 paintings in my solo honours and gives thanks to Energy. It is my humble way, given my limitations to celebrate Energy in colours, and textures whilst romancing the abstraction, and venturing beyond form.

Dreams do come through if one works tirelessly and perseveres. The solo exhibition ENERGY by Singapore artist Gloria Keh opened at the Yukyung Art Museum that’s within the Haegeumgang Theme Museum in South Korea, on July 1st 2022. The exhibition ends on August 25th 2022. The exhibition expresses the birth of energy, the creation of the universe and the earth-bound journey of human beings through 20 paintings. How it is the basic instinct for Man to survive, build homes, create, share, know, etc.

The 20 works express the development process of human society through various colours and textures and finally introspect upon the return to the Source. Work began in 2021 in Singapore, where the artist resides. It is Keh’s fifth solo exhibition. She has held three solos in Singapore and her first overseas solo was staged at the Gallery Steiner in Vienna, Austria.
