    Sleepless in the City

    The starting point for this series of oil paintings by Hong Sek Chern is the etching “The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters” (1797 – 1798) by Francisco Goya. The artist is fascinated by the notion of the unknown and irrational in the so-called ‘rational’ act of sleeping.
    Instead of showing dreamscapes that elude the sleeplessness, the paintings depict snippets of day scenes – the void deck of HDBs, hawker centres, by the Singapore River and other parts of the city. The gestures and expressionist strokes intrude or recede to suggest the constant struggle between accessing the external, objective reality whilst negotiating the internal, subjective individuality.

    The Empty Room

    "My inspiration for this series of works 2 years ago came from having my studio emptied out after works were out for a major solo show. It is very rare to have my studio in an empty state. I felt free and light and allowed my imagination to run. An evolution of forms were born after. Through the experience, I realized that if we empty ourselves sometimes, interesting ideas can pop up."

    Contentions - 4 Myanmar Artists coming together

    Almost fifteen years back Aung Myint, San Minn and M.P.P Yei Myint made their first exhibition in Singapore at The Substation in an exhibition “New Paintings from Myanmar” arranged by Art-2 Gallery, 1996. Here in 2013, the artists are again showing their new works, with the addition of Kyee Myint Saw, who is certainly not a newcomer to the gallery circuit. 

    In the course of looking forward with new works, the artists are also typically looking back, the intimations of hindsight being an indicator of where and how far one has traversed the course. The idea of the four artists coming to exhibit together, and in Singapore, is mainly to allow new views of their work, which also turns internally onto themselves as producers of art.

    ALAM – A pottery exhibition by Suriani Suratman

    "Every time I go to my little studio at Jalan Bahar Clay Studis (JBCS) on the west corner of Singapore I am greeted by nature’s beauty –  trees of different height, plants in a wide variety of forms and, of course, the various calls of birds. This charming surrounding is as calming to my soul as it is an inspiration for my works. “Alam”, the title of my exhibition, is a Malay word which refers to the world, the environment and the natural surroundings. In this exhibition, I present works inspired by nature. I am awed by the forms and textures that nature creates –  the curves of leaf stalks, the contours of fern leave, the folds of the fungus, and the skilfully-built nests by the birds. In this series of works, I try to capture this beauty of nature’s forms and textures."

    Suriani Suratman, December 2012
