  • City vista

    Arts · Yeo, Thomas, 1936-
    City Vista represents the development of collage and the exploration of the potential of materials Yeo found around him. He regards collage as a way of freeing himself from the tyranny of the brush. This painting presents the idea of an abstract land/cityscape, commenting on the architecture of his environment. This...
  • Reflections : lotus pond in a moment of silence

    Arts · Chua, Ek Kay, 1947-2008
    The Reflections series emerged from the Lotus Pond series. While the latter presents the composites of plant life from the pond’s surface, the concept of the Reflections series delves more holistically on surface and submerged phenomena, thus conceptually strengthening the symbolic references to the macro-cosmic order of Taoist philosophy. Physical dimensions...
  • Archipelago

    Arts · Chua, Ek Kay
    The Archipelago series invokes the landscape of island-forms. The series returns Chua to the ink tradition of landscape painting, but Chua’s intentions are to cast the subject matter as symbolically localised landscapes to accommodate social and historical journeys of inter-regional migratory seafarers. Physical dimensions of original: 960 x 1420 mm.
  • A junction on Rochor Road

    Arts · Chua, Ek Kay, 1947-2008
    A Junction on Rochor Road is made after Chua’s return from post-graduate studies in Australia. Here, with the use of the technique of expressive ink and calligraphic strokes, Chua distorts the subject such that the image is at threat of dissolving into fragmentary chaos of patchy stains. The painting balances...
  • The last tango on the sea : no. 1

    Arts · Chng, Seok Tin
    Even as she contemplates the beauty of nature in her works, Chng is also an artist with a conscience, often reflecting on the issues of the day, decrying the destructive actions of man. Chng was moved to create this work after reading about the plight and tragedy of the “boat...
  • A wall of history

    Arts · Chua, Ek Kay, 1947-2008
    A Wall of History is a mature development of Chua’s Singapore Street Scenes series. Here, Chua clearly articulates his relationship with the series: the façade is now a symbol inscribed by and with history in bearing the residual stains of time and neglect. Physical dimensions of original: 1930 x 2520 mm.
  • Love

    Arts · Wee, Beng-Chong, 1938-
    Semi-representational, the work shows two figures locked in embrace in an upright position. Wee has produced numerous works expressing emotional and psychological conditions through abstract compositions. In this particular work, the figures are fused and suspended in an amorphous context, drawing greater attention to the materiality of their emotional state...
  • Song of cicada

    Arts · Chua, Ek Kay
    Song of Cicada is Chua’s most complex work on the use of symbolic space. The patches of ink represent drifting leaves in an expanse of empty space which serves as a space of imagination where the viewer is invited to imagine and envision experience from within the painting. Physical dimensions of...
  • Fishing raft on Likiang River

    Arts · Wee, Beng-Chong, 1938-
    The work depicts the practice of cormorant fishing taking place along the Li River in Guangxi, China. Showing fishermen framed by distinctive green hills seemingly rising to the sky, the painting exudes both dynamism and repose. It captures in its essence a scene where nature and human activities co-exist in...
  • Flowing

    Arts · Chng, Seok Tin
    Water has been a source of inspiration to Chng – the River Thames while she studied in London, and the Humber River when she was in Hull. Encouraged by renowned printmaker M Lasansky, her professor at the University of Iowa, the Iowa River became Chng’s exclusive subject during her stay...
