Yp Teow -Khoon, Thunderstorm
Yp Teow-Khoon's Thunderstorm is one of several pictures gifted to the University of Canberra (when it was still the Canberra College of Advanced Education) in the late 1970s. Although there is little known about the artist, he has chosen a subject matter; which as attracted artists for hundreds of years- everyone from Da Vinci to Gainsborough. Storms provide a fascinating study in chiarascaro, the study of light and dark as well as effects of cloud and rain-bursts. Y Teo-Khoon illustrates the darkness of the storm clouds with effect using traditional Chinese brush-strokes and the use of inks and water-colour. The work is believed to have been given to the University in the lat1970s.
