The Story

Giggling young ladies watch from behind a decorative Chinese screen in a long-gone moment in time. Baba Nyonya Love Story tells the tale of love in a traditional Chinese Peranakan home. Created with a modern touch, this artwork was inspired by a trip to the Baba & Nyonya Heritage Museum in Melaka several years ago.

As a former guide at the Singapore Peranakan Museum, I learned about how potential suitors might have visited the prospective bride’s parents - along with the often formidable matchmaker! The meeting would have been held at the entrance hall of the shophouse. The yellow used in this work represents sunshine streaming in from outside to light up the typically dark inner section of the home. The heart-shaped patterns form latticework, and many of the patterns are taken from real vintage tiles found in Singapore and Malaysia.

The Singapore Heritage Tile Art Collection

A visual exploration of patterns of the past in a play on heritage and tradition.
