The Concept of Beauty by Dr David Loh Surgery
WAOblog Asia had the honor of attending The concept of beauty hosted by Dr Loh from David Loh and Surgery at WARHOL: The Pop-Up Gallery
on 10 July 2015
We were simply mesmerized by everything from the paintings on the walls of the gallery to the guests and food! The environment, guests and even food exuded an aura of captivating beauty.
We were given a warm welcome speech from Dr David Loh and followed up by a short talk in which he explained the definition and concept of beauty. Here’s an interesting fact mentioned by Dr Loh.
Why do we term or feel that celebrities or models or anyone on the street is/ are considered beautiful?
We will base this on Leonardo da Vinci’s drawings of the human body, where Leonardo da Vinci’ emphasised its proportion based on the Golden ratio.
The length of our nose, the position and distance of our eyes, the height of our chin and forehead etc… all conform to some aspect of the Golden Ratio.
So, believe it or not, beauty comes in the form of a mathematical formula!! So do you have the perfect golden ratio? Well perhaps a quick check with Dr Loh might be the key to unlock the “beautiful answer”
We moved on to beauty of another kind; it is none other than the beautiful works by Andy Warhol exhibited at WARHOL: The Pop-Up Gallery. Dr Alvin Koh (Director of Collectors Contemporary) gave us an insightful tour of Andy Warhol’s art pieces exhibited at the gallery. Thinking of owning a piece of Andy Warhol’s work of art, well hesitate no longer as they will be exhibited and available till September 2015.
Special thanks to
Dr David Loh and Dr Phoon Yi Shan for the invitation and wonderful hospitality
Dr Alvin Koh and Mr. Gary Sng for the tour of their art gallery and wonderful hospitality as well.
