I’ve been going to several art shows in Singapore, which has allowed me to begin immersing myself in the art scene here. Although Singapore is known as a financial center, it has a very vibrant and growing art scene as well. On my first week here, I went to a group show in TAKSU Gallery showcasing work by seven artists from the Philippines.
This week I went to Art Seasons Gallery and saw their new group show, which had some truly spectacular work by Asian artists. There were two paintings by Jung Jae Ho capturing contemporary cityscapes with unexpected bursts of color. Lee Yong-Deok’s work played with perspective and I would place it in a category of sculptural paintings. As I walked through the space, his paintings would change perspective and “move”. Cao Jingping’s modern take on Chinese painting was detailed, monochromatic, and emotionally powerful. The first piece I saw as I walked into the gallery was Zheng Lu‘s stainless steel installation, Impression of Hongren’s Landscape. I also got to see the work of and meet Donna Ong – she’s an amazing person and artist, definitely check out her website!
