FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (AUGUST 2014. Malaysia) The “Little Princess” sculpture, the artist’s personal tribute to his daughter, must have struck a sentimental cord with guests as the limited 8 pieces sold out during the opening of FOUL exhibition on 23 August 2014.
This event that runs until 9 September 2014 at PINKGUY gallery is the first solo bronze exhibition by the Asian contemporary artist extraordinaire Ch’ng Huck Theng.
Presenting 15 bronze works which were displayed over the water feature which graces the lobby of Marc Residences, Ch’ng introduced a new perspective to the concept of identity in which the question of race, religion, nationality and ethnicity is deliberately left out.
The successful opening was officiated by Dato’ Mahadzir Lokman, the Chairman of the National Visual Arts Development Board and attended by a select guest list of art collectors, experts and friends.
Those attending the event were also priviledged to witness the unveiling of Ch’ng’s latest work “Princess Liberty“, depicting the figure of a woman riding a horse which raises the question of freedom in anonymity. Other pieces that were sold that evening include “Anak Malaysia” and “Checkmate“.
