Portraits of Nature - Plants of Fort Canning 大自然系列

Portraits of Nature - Plants of Fort Canning 大自然系列

A series was painted in 2013

Investigating the nature of things through the medium of watercolors. Perhaps returning to its source, wondering about the idea of the indestructibility of the source. In its indestructibility perhaps is a certain absolute and eternity. And perhaps the truth is in this absolute and unchangeable eternity. Eternity in the sense of the absolute which could cut across time, unrestrained or limit by it. How then would one paint that absolute using nature as a vehicle and watercolour as the medium? What is that source and that absolute? Very often I have been asked what is Art, as many would prefer a painting to be a copy of what we see. It is good if there is a great amount of likeness between the real and the painted. For purchase email :

山水抒豪情,雨林写情怀 –写新加坡的花草树木 总是觉得很多所谓的不一样的知识都有它的连贯性,摄影,画画,哲学,文学,设计,心理学等。宇宙的运作是有一定的规律,它从无而运行为有,我们把它种种的有归纳为种种不一样的学科,简单化后可能我们就能察觉它的规律。了解了我们就能安下心来,来去自如。

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.

One Bodhi Tree

Documenting with Photography, writing, history and human spirit. Some want to conserve the graveyard, others wants to conserve their ancestors’ history, but here they want to conserve the Bodhi Tree, perhaps for the Genius Loci, or perhaps Lord Krishna and its humble temple anchored the fond memories of the boys who grew up in this village. For sometimes it is beyond reason that some things are done in this way. For me, I paint the moment for eternity. For the last milliseconds were gone when they passed us. Only the photographs can recall the stories again and again vividly.
