I'm excited to be selected as one of four artists representing Singapore at The World Triennial of Prints and Original Engravings in September. Looking forward to creating some new works especially for this show! I'd also like to thank LUDO Gallery for their support.
I've always been keen on many aspects of French culture including architecture, interiors and fashion. It's ironic that my interest in floor and wall tiles in Singapore led me to the fleur-de-lis or flower-de-luce. The fleur-de-lis symbol depicts a stylized lily or lotus flower, and is said to represent French royalty as well as perfection, light, and life. Elegant floral tiles inspired by this motif can be found in many traditional Peranakan shophouses. We'll see what the next few weeks in the studio produce for this show!
