Recently I had the honour to be invited to conduct an artist talk to the students of Tanglin Trust School. During the talk, a teacher that I greatly admired showed me his sketchbooks and I was inspired by the amount of content and the use of Instax in it.
Therefore, I went out to get an Instax camera myself and I have been working on my sketches for the upcoming Printmaking book exhibition. I am working on the theme History, and the images below are some of my progress so far.
Currently I am working on the composition and methods create this book. It will be exciting to see where this leads to.
Lastly, here's a test print of the composition sketch. Are you able to guess which part of our country history is this?
I am happy to announce that I will be part of the 20 printmakers and designers participating in the upcoming, Contemporary Printmaking Festival 2017. I will be posting my progress on my blog, so stay tuned!
Here's a peek into my collect of rocks mostly formed by concrete. They are a big part of my reference into my work. Most of these objects are pick up and collected because I was attracted to their shape, colour and the materials.
In colour, I look for subtle colour that appear as part of the object.
Another important factor is the shape. Some looks like an island, a platform or even a cliff.
The rock formation forms the foundation of my artwork.
Every little thing no matter how small or simple can be a source of inspiration for anyone.
Do you have any collection that helps you in your art making?
I am interested in documenting Rochor Centre as they are about to be demolish and make way for future development.
Found this mirror right in the middle of the void deck poster.
There are a number of cleaners stationed at the void deck trying to help with the discarding of items. Most of the time they became the subject of interest in the photos.
Definitely not a good condition to live at for the workers...
The amount of unwanted fridge filled with waste and rot.
