Painting 1979



In this work, Wee relies on the deliberate placement of lines and coloured areas to attain a range of responses from viewers. Areas of colours are delineated on the picture surface with sharpness and clarity. His paint application is non-gestural and impersonal. The work demonstrates Wee’s preference for hard-edge painting in his engagements with modernist abstraction. This work of oil on canvas is part of Singapore Art Museum Collection. Physical dimensions of original: 1830 x 1220 mm.
