Loo Hooi Nam
Beyond the familiar landscapes in Loo Hooi Nam paintings, there is a kind of suspense which Loo offers viewers; the experience of being there with him - like taking in the wind on a secluded beach or the rustling of leaves in a quiet afternoon. Each of these moment captured with swift unrestrained palette knife strokes and marks that exhibit his instinctive impulses and feeling for the place he is painting. One has to feel your way across the terrain with eyes open and will be richly rewarded with a surface adventure that hypnotized and pulsate with light and colour.
