My Highlights from Art Stage Singapore 2015
As it turns out, some of my selections are by young emerging artists, who create very solid and interesting artworks. While I provide notes on those particular works, the more senior artists speak for themselves.
Lei Wang is very clever in turning an archive (here, a newspaper) into a work of art. He is very meticulous in every detail of his work.
In this particularly interesting work, Wawi Navarroza combines her photos with mixed-media drawings, contrasting the reality captured by photography with her interpretation of that particular image.
Although the artist is still young, her mastery of pencil on paper is fascinating.
Titarubi presents her interpretation of Indonesia’s history as the Dutch East Indies under colonial rule, using gold-plated whole nutmeg. What lies behind the nutmeg is a dark, brutal history of conquest in the Bandas Islands.
