It is worth noting that Soo Pieng’s early works are remarkably difficult to obtain, making this present lot an outstanding rarity. Soo Pieng’s precise treatment of space and dimension is enlivened by his use of complementary colours, which finds its roots from scientific colour theories. Against a backdrop of ivory, the canary yellow of the sunflowers seems to stand out amidst the canvas. Upon closer inspection, these sunflowers appear to be nearing the end of their lives, bent over delicately, but perhaps this is what Soo Pieng aims to portray: total reality and actuality. Those who have had the privilege of learning under the tutelage of Soo Pieng have always remarked of his profound investigations of perspective, and such is the case with Sunflowers, which contends a complete representation of his cubist approach to still life.
