featuring Boo Sze Yang, Chankerk, and Tay Bak Chiang
Date: Monday, 22 October to Saturday, 10 November 2012
Venue: OCBC Centre Branch
Three Singaporean artists - Boo Sze Yang, Chankerk, and Tay Bak Chiang - employtraditional painting techniques from oil to Chinese ink, to realise contemporary visions of our surroundings. Their works are reflections on life in our cities today, a journey from the vastness of the urban sprawl, to the alluring interiors of our architectural icons, to the infinite serene beauty of the natural environment.
Khalil Chishtee’s current sculptural work mimes the ubiquitous plastic rubbish bag in the unlikeliest ways. Using this robust yet slight material, he has created a series of ethereal figures suspended, almost floating in their exhibition space, yet formed with sculptural precision and great attention to detail.
Following the successful exhibition of the hotel’s third artist-in-residence, Lin Bao Ling, the Marina Mandarin continues its collaboration with art consultancy Asian Art Options, to appoint its fourth Resident Artist – Huang Lip.
