“The Other Half of The Sky” – solo exhibition by Marina Fietta (Italian)

Thursday, March 23rd, 2017

“The Other Half of the Sky” is an invitation to open your heart to a world that sometimes escapes the eye.

A world of children. A world that remains remote, yet lies just around the corner from our ‘world’.

A world of harshness and scarce resources, yet a world of incredible beauty and poetry

A very different “sky”, yet the same sky above our heads.

 

While remaining faithful to Marina’s signature style, these works go beyond the subject matter of her paintings. They seek to capture the inner life of her subjects, and reveal an evolution toward a more realistic style that connects even more forcefully with the viewer.

This is no mere academic exercise. In a world awash with images, Marina invites us to perceive that which – all too often – escapes the eye.

“Inspiration from the Blue” – Ceramic Pottery by Yukiharu Furuno

Wednesday, March 15th, 2017

Blue-Yellow_Flower

Inspirations from the Blue is a nod to his award-winning Royal Blue series, a distinct new style created after the passing of his beloved wife in 2003. Prior to this series, his works used ash glaze made from soybeans and onion. These yellow ash glazed creations formed his primary style for more than 35 years.

Unfazed by the challenge of creating a new style and aesthetic at such an advanced stage in his career, Furuno broke new grounds with Royal Blue and drew a distinct line from his past works. Royal Blue is the product of a man’s grief and his tenacity to continue moving forward.

Furuno’s ceramics uses ash glazes made by plant materials native to Hannan, a city located in the Osaka Prefecture in Japan. The connection between the functional uses of nature and its immense beauty leads the inspiration of all his designs. This is probably the reason why Furuno’s works are known to exhilarates its viewers, bringing them into the depths of forests and over boundless oceans.

The exhibition will also unveil new works inspired by Singapore’s diverse cultures and rich designs. As a tribute to his first showcase in Singapore, Furuno would like to express his interpretations of this vibrant little red dot through his own hands. Visitors will appreciate the marriage of traditional and contemporary aesthetics found in his works, and visualise how these look in a modern home.
