Peek-a-boo is a playful portrayl of those fleeting moments when we reveal our true selves through all the filters of everyday life. It’s a mere glimpse of authenticity shining trough our layered souls and a reminder to let it show through every now and then. This composition alse references a gilden sun peeping trough the clouds.
This work in pastel is meant to create a feeling of warmth. A myriad of emotions are cocooned in our hearts, built layer by layer with each experience and each interraction we go through. These layers of grey embrace and protect our inermost, truest selves.
Drift, like a piece of driftwood, floating on a bed of waves. Let go of control for a bit. Move in and out of thoughts and memories to the lull of the water. Be in that moment of absolute peace where nothing and nobody reaches you apart from the warmth lapping at your cheeks as you gently move through the bylanes of your mind. Today, more than ever, Drift. This is a mixed media work on stretched canvas with palette wood attached. The artwork is a part of a series - If Walls Could Speak.
Link speaks of a relationship.. as abstract as one between individuals- Marriage, parenthood, friendship or siblings. Its a connection between two entities. It also explores physical relationships on the canvas, between form and space, line and weight. This is a mixed media artwork with coffee and bitumen on stretched canvas.
It takes a village to raise a child. No one can exist in absolute isolation. This is the premise of this painting. It is an exploration of form and space, line and texture. This is mixed media artwork with coffee and bitumen on stretched canvas.
Passage is inspired by a disused rail track at the Bukit Timah Rail Corridor. Frequent visits to this space evoke childhood nostalgia, moments of innocence and joyful abandon preserved in time. The rail corridor used to be a connection between two countries and now, in its state of disuse it connects the past to the present and then into the future. A passage through time and through treasured memories of the distant past. This artwork is created in two panel, signifying two eras, yet the transition from one to the other is seamless...much like the historical events that would have transpired. This mixed media work employs coffee & bitumen on stretched cotton canvas.
Come Snow After Fire
The title of this painting comes from a quote from JRR Tolkeins' book, the Hobbit.. "Come snow after fire and even dragons have their endings". Bilbo makes this comment while making his way back up the misty mountains, as he looks back at snow covered Erabor. The quest that he had undertaken was now over and it was time to go home. The artist likens this piece of writing to one experienced after a tumultuous and arduous relationship.. where relief comes through resolution and one must embrace the vacant but quiet space that follows. There, under the blanket of snow, rests the sleeping dragon. there is peace. It is time to move on. This is a multi layered, mixed media work on stretched canvas.
