Yeo was the first Singaporean artist to be shortlisted for the LOEWE Craft Prize, London, UK (2018). Revolving around themes of lightness and slowness, Yeo’s practice is built upon reflections on the accumulations of hedonistic culture and alludes to the soft and fragile. Her paper sculptures explore geometry, precision, and the spiritual power of simple materials. She is currently interested in maintaining a relationship with nature. Ashley Yeo lives and works in Singapore.
