In line with the theme, participants are gently pushed to go against their natural tendency to create ‘recognisable’ patterns.

From December 2017 to March 2018, Singapore Art Museum presents a series of sensory play and art-making workshops for toddlers. In these workshops specially designed for younger children between the ages of 18 months and 4 years, they will explore colours and other elements of art through tactile, sensory craft. Sensory play and process art (in which the end product of the art and craft activity is not the main focus) is a great way to give the little ones room to be themselves and learn about the world around them. These workshops present engaging and fun activities that assist brain and motor development, as their senses are actively engaged to explore and create. Conducted and facilitated by Jelly Bean Attic, the Singapore Art Museum Toddler Art Workshops feature a different theme each session, and toddlers will get to take home their creations as a keepsake. Dates | Saturdays 2, 9 & 16 December 2017 6 & 13 January 2018 3 & 10 February 2018 3 & 10 March 2018 Time | 10.30am – 11.30am Admission | $35 per parent-child pair ($30 for each session with sign-ups for 6 or more classes) Tickets | www.bit.ly/SAMTots *Each session will commence with [...]
Element Art Space is pleased to present Arkiv Vilmansa’s third solo exhibition in Singapore. Known for his whimsical characters, this exhibition is a departure from his previous oeuvre since his last solo show with the gallery in 2015. For nearly seven years, Vilmansa’s creative process has always involved fantasy, imagination and personal dreams that were realised through various fictional characters in strong and bold bright colours. This search led him to discover a new series of landscapes in the form of topographic maps of the area he explores. Images of topographic maps are shaped by an array of lines to form fields. In Come to Light, Vilmansa uses light to emphasize the reflection of life-based on his beliefs, while others use light to highlight reality. His playful use of textures, colours and shapes with light source are evident in this new series of works, in which he also explores the interaction of colours with shadows and light. The change from dark to light in each transition between them gives meaning and beauty of its own in its journey to the light. Through this process, Vilmansa is too being re-mapped in his relationship with his Creator —thenever ending journey to reach [...]
Wishes Night at Dorothy Circus Gallery – London It’s time for wishes at Dorothy Circus Gallery! Alongside the masterpieces from selected international female artists Afarin Sajedi (Iran,) Fuco Ueda (Japan), Marion Peck (USA), Miss Van (France), who lead us in a journey through the pop surrealism women icons together with the masters Ray Caesar, Joe Sorren and more, we are proud to present the special feature artwork: “METEORA” by Italian artist Paolo Pedroni The artwork is a metaphor for desire and hope. Somewhere someone wished upon a star. Transcending the Daruma meditative state, the comet is shedding its pieces alluding to a celestial power in motion to turn this wish into reality. The cherry blossom, the symbol of the fragility of time, accompanies the ethereal comet during its journey. It shifts softly guided only by the harmonious flute and the gentle lantern light toward the gleaming galaxy, the center of an inextinguishable desire where everything is possible and imaginable. During the Wishes Night we will gift the first 30 guests with our new released catalogue “Pages From Mind Travellers Diaries” featuring both exhibitions held in DCG London and DCG Rome. Catalogues will be given on a first come first served [...]

ArtsEquator is proud to announce the unveiling of a photography competition, entitled “Capture a moment of Art in the Making”, in commemoration of its 1st anniversary. The competition is initiated to celebrate the people who create art and the unsung labour that goes into every little detail of making art, be it an exhibition, the writing process, team discussions, or the process of choreographing a dance or a physical theatre piece. ArtsEquator is on the lookout for snapshots of artists at work, or even caught in a moment of contemplation, reflection or anxiety, as they make a piece of work; regardless of any genre or medium. But don’t be a stalker — get their permission first. ArtsEquator is also interested in receiving captions on what the moment captures — the more creative and interesting, the better. The competition will be running from 15th November 2017 to 9th February. It will also be graced by a profile of juries that will be looking at both the quality of the image, its relevance to the theme and the way the captions are able to add depth towards understanding the process of art-making. There will be prizes for the winner competitions, [...]

Y2ARTS Gallery first exhibition for year 2018, is pleased to present an interesting collection of artworks by Ocean Wang. This is her second solo exhibition in Singapore. Ocean Wang believes that a painting can be both “impressionistic and fantastical”. Her works are often detailed, vividly coloured, and surreal; yet demands a sense of realism. Ocean’s artworks are her exploration of perception and incongruity, and through which she engages us in a dialogue with visuals of Impressionism and Surrealism. In her upcoming solo exhibition at Y2ARTS Gallery, Ocean presents new paintings, which are intimate, revealing and personal. Many of these new works explore the passage of time as seen through the reflections of flowing water; depicting personal memories and perspectives of the artist. Ever since the creation of artworks in her first solo exhibition in 2015, Ocean has continued to confound viewers with her paintings, almost, as a rebellion against what is traditional and real. Her works which seemingly appears to be an impressionistic paintings of waterfalls, flowing rivers or simple water movements; are fuelled by surrealistic imagery and imagination. For Ocean, her collection of works is what she devises as new “reality”, playing with perspective and forced juxtapositions that reflects personal [...]

Mukand discusses her meditations on nature as a city-dweller, how flora inspires her work, and how she visually expresses the continual changes that occur in life, death and decay.

In conjunction with Singapore Art Week 2018, iPreciation proudly presents Along the Great Path 行於大道, a solo exhibition by acclaimed Chinese calligrapher and ink artist, Wang Dongling 王冬齡. Regarded as one of China’s greatest living calligrapher, Wang is best known for his public performances involving large format “Wild Cursive” script (狂草), a Chinese calligraphic style characterized by its erratic and dynamic strokes. His works are often deeply rooted in the ancient philosophies of Buddhism and Taoism, as well as the Chinese classics.

Group exhibition by Albert Yonathan Setyawan (ID), Amano Yoshitaka (JP), Entang Wiharso (ID), Gilang Fradika (ID), Heri Dono (ID), Iwan Effendi (ID), Okamoto Ellie (JP), Shen Zhenglin (CN), and Zen Teh (SG). Parts of our traditions are deeply rooted in the beliefs of religions, mythologies, legends, animisms, and folklores. Folklore is a body of culture shared by a particular group of people that is mainly passed through word of mouth. It reflects on the magical and mysterious, and its transmission is a vital part of its being. From this perspective, Mizuma Gallery is delighted to present Folkloristics, a group exhibition featuring works by Albert Yonathan Setyawan, Amano Yoshitaka, , Entang Wiharso, Gilang Fradika, Heri Dono, Iwan Effendi, Okamoto Ellie, Shen Zhenglin, and Zen Teh. As the name suggests, this exhibition is a discussion based on the study of folklores in the present age. Folkloristics focuses on contemporary artists, whose works make references to and/or are influenced by folklores, addressing issues that stem from the desire to question areas that cannot be figured out by science or reason. Yet, they encompass common traditions to a culture, subculture, or group, and discuss values that were once respected. This also leads us to [...]
