On Common Ground
A Solo Exhibition @ Mulan Gallery, Singapore
22nd April - 20th May 2017
On Common Ground features a new series of works that throws our surroundings into sharp relief. Playing homage to the ever-changing ground surface of Singapore, where every day, mundane things such as walking on a pavement is often taken for granted, Chen seeks to present the beauty of the ground by using printmaking as a primary medium of expression. This series puts the spotlight both on people from different walks of life who play different roles in our society, and the singular chorus of the nation, where each individual offers a unique tenor to the country ’s well-being and a distinctive imprint on its social geographical terrain.
