Hong Kong Street, Singapore, in the 80's

This is a series of snapshots of the paintings. When magnified, we see the stroke and the colours interact in ways that begin to be an adventure of our visual senses. The process is first selecting photographs from a series of old shots I had taken many years ago and reconstruct them in watercolours. Then scan or digitally photograph them, bring them into Photoshop and digitally manipulate them. The final output can be done on a photographic print or on canvas. Here is the series of snapshots I had taken from the watercolour I had done. This process investigates the translation and interpretation of old photos, converting them into another form, fragmenting them, re-framing them, adding digital manipulation to pixelate them, creating a myriad of colours, allowing the audience to see the colours and enjoy its form and texture. The fragments are to be printed in large pieces. The audience step back to see the fragment. Perhaps they can then piece together the fragments in their mind. In the process, perhaps helps them to recollect past memories and re-live those memories, although they are tainted by the length of time and personal selective memory.



















Here is the snap shots, before photoshop manipulation.

Old Singapore – Clarke Quay and Fort Canning

It is interesting to look at the old photographs and start noticing changes being made to the landscape. It was investment well made when I got my negative scanned professionally and now I have the privilege to look at them and ponder, what are the changes in the photographs.
Join me in this fun game to explore Clarke Quay and also Fort Canning, some of the buildings that look old may be added later on, and we thought it was historical. Add your view to the Comment.

Art Spectacles - Bill Boards, Poster and Flyer

This is the Billboard for the exhibition and I just love the saturated colors of the work. We printed a 1.2 width canvas and hang it outside Galeri Utama. I noticed many passer-by looking at the Billboards. The purpose is well served.
We printed hundreds of Flyer to distribute around the vicinity of Galeri Utama. It should help to inform the public about the exhibition.
10 poster was printed and perhaps we will print more once we finish distributing them. You can download the poster and help spread word about the exhibition. THX!
