THE STORY

Giggling young ladies watch potential suitors behind decorative Chinese screens in a long-gone moment in time. Baba Nyonya Love Story tells the tale of love in a traditional Peranakan home. Created with a modern touch, this artwork was inspired by many trips to shophouses in Singapore and Malaysia, and by soaking up the atmosphere of traditional Peranakan life during plays performed by local theatre group Gunong Sayang.

As a former guide at the Peranakan Museum, I loved hearing how potential suitors would arrive at the entrance hall of the shophouse’s first room to meet the potential bride’s parents - along with the matchmaker! No doubt the girls of the house would be eager to take a peek at the young man. The yellow used in this work represents sunshine streaming in from outside to light up the typically dark inner section of the home.
