Despite the ripe age of 81, Dr Ho Kah Leong hardly rests on his laurels; instead, he has revisited his long passion of woodcut prints in recent years. With the information that he has gathered, he painstakingly carved 42 artworks for this special exhibition. His choice of retaining the classic style of black and white woodcut prints further highlight the vibrancy and distinctiveness of each print.
Titled Passion Rejuvenated, this exhibition contemplates on Dr Ho’s continued inquisitiveness and fondness for woodcut prints. Additionally, it expresses his hopes for this art form to rediscover the recognition and importance that it once had.
The landmark showcase will feature 30 portraits of fellow artists, 6 woodcut prints of socialism and rural lifestyle dated back from 1957 to 1980 and 6 pieces of refugee series will be exhibited in this solo woodcut exhibition. Dr Ho Kah Leong’s intention to inspire young artists on woodcut art making as well to inform the public and bring social commentary on the reflection of the plight of refugees.
