Title: Seletar

Artist: Gwen Lim

Medium: Pen and ink on paper

Dimension: 59.4cm x 42cm (artwork)

Framed

Current Bid by KL: S$500

Synopsis

My work looks at the issue of nature and man and the imbalance between the two. The subject is a landscape drawing of a reservoir at sunrise made out of angular Cubist shapes and varying graphic lines. The idea of abstracting the landscape to a basic form is to enhance its aesthetics and simplicity, providing peace and calmness. The work is monochromatic so that no strong elements dominate the composition. This is how I hope to represent the relationship of man and nature in a balanced state.

About the Artist:

Gwen Lim was a student of the School of the Arts (SOTA). She took Visual Arts in her 6 years in SOTA and majored in 2D and lens-based medium in her IB years. Her passion for the arts started at a young age of 4, starting with the colouring, hence her choice to major and continue to develop her skills in similar mediums.

Title: No Longer

Artist: Olivia Fones

Medium: Coloured markers on paper

Dimension: 20.2 x 16.6 cm (artwork)

Framed (gold)

Starting Bid: S$200

Synopsis:

Sometimes reality gets disappointing; life feels banal and seems to be endless, fruitless work. It’s easier to dream as you can control the entirety of life while transcending time and space. You pick what you may from reality, leave the rest behind, and travel for an eternity, living what ought to be reality.

About the Artist:

Olivia Fones is a Singapore-based illustrator who explores making multifaceted art that varies visually based on the purpose behind a work; play and exploration, expressing her ambitions, or showing disdain for societal norms and expectations. From the perspective of a youth, she discusses the duality of Man in one’s ability to have fun and create mindlessly yet struggle to upkeep the rhythm of systematic living.

She works primarily with pen, pencil and digital illustration to present narratives concepts and through text and natural subject matter such as plants and human parts. Often sticking to two-dimensional drawing, she enjoys creating highly detailed, small scale illustrations, murals and zines that express honest and raw thoughts about her experiences and future. She intends to continue creating honest artworks that aim to deny the standard of contemporary art in Singapore and make art that appeal to not only art lovers but the general public.
