The use of the tree in the realm of the fine arts seems infinite. An inspired Shih Yun Yeo recently conceived of a truly unique study. The artist engaged in ‘collaboration’ with various trees in Singapore, collecting a number of drawings for a solo exhibition in 2011. The work relates heavily to her attempt to ‘release drawing from its enslavement to the artist’s hand’. Poetic and romantic, the expression cedes control to the natural environment as a creative source. Green envy.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
