Jolly @ 80
A Solo Exhibition by Jolly Koh
10 - 29 Jan 2022
To mark the master artist’s 80th birthday, G13 Gallery is holding a solo exhibition titled Jolly @ 80. Who else could be the subject other than Dr Jolly Koh – Malaysia’s preeminent painter of a pioneering generation. There will be more than 40 paintings on display, each wrought in his own inimitable style.
Jolly Koh has outlived and certainly outworked most of his contemporaries. In the tale of the hare and the tortoise, he would be the snail: a hard crust hiding plenty of stamina and extreme self-containment. There is only one person this artist tries to please, and that is himself. His well-known criticism of others falls well short of his self-criticism. Seeking perfection is his mission and he has by no means given up the quest.
As productive as ever, in his 80th year, the exhibition highlights the creativity and sheer physical energy that continues to characterise Jolly Koh’s artistry.
Jolly @ 80 runs from 10 to 29 January 2022 at G13 Gallery.
