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.
