Moving Mountains - Boo Sze Yang,Tay Bak Chiang and Chiew Sian Kuan

This exhibition is held from 17th January 2018 to 4th February 2018 at Artsembly at Esplanade.

It's an artist run space and the three are presenting their works there.

Boo Sze Yang as done something new. From the brown monochromatic works seen at Ipreciation he has now done monochromatic works in black on paper and linen. Interesting abstract geometric landscape works. Nice to see something fresh.

Tay Bak Chiang has done more of the same thing. You'll recognise it when you see it.

Chiew Sian Kuan showed two interesting wood sculptures. Nice works.

Boo Sze Yang

Points for collectors: Boo Sze Yang given a buy rating. Chiew Sian Kuan does nice sculptures but not sure of the market for his works. And he has to improve his visibility. Mentioned his name to some gallerists/ gallerina / gallerino and received blank stares. Tay Bak Chiang hold first. Too many similar works in the market.

Shared Coordinates - Various

This exhibition is held from 20th January to 28th January 2018 over at the Arts House in the Civic District.

This was a group show by 4 galleries, SilverLens (Manila), ROH Project (Jakarta), FOST gallery (Singapore) and Edouard Malingue (HK).

We focus on FOST and her Singaporean artists.

Nice works from the local artists which she represents.

Heman Chong

Ang Song Ming

Tan Wyn-Lyn and Grace Tan

Ang Song Ming

Points for collectors: Buy rating for all the artists. Grace Tan maybe soft buy rating but interesting works.

Folkloristics - Various including Zeh Teh

This exhibition is held from 18th January 2018 to 25th February 2018 at Mizuma gallery at Gillman Barracks.

This exhibition features quite a few artists. But we shall focus on Zeh Teh who presented an installation of pebbles, marble slabs, painted wall and a print of waves.

The image was made of many many images of the same location superimposed on top of one another.

And there were 2 stools from which to view the work.

Interesting and lovely work. Stools were an unnecessary gimmick.

Points for collectors: Zeh Teh given a buy rating.

Wah lao too many things going on

Really too many things going on.

Just managed to catch up on a few posts and still more to catch up with. Really busy this week and have to miss certain events. Guess I will have to rely on the internet and social media to update me on those I missed.

Anyway happy art week. Art stage will be next week and hope you manage to buy something.

Happy hunting and good luck!

RAID - Various

This exhibition is held from 13th January to 3rd February 2018 over at the Tiong Bahru Air Raid Shelter.

It is organised by Zulkhairi Zulkiflee and Daniel Chong and also features Ivan David Ng, Tay Ining, Vanessa Lim, Jacqueline Sim, Pooja Kanade and Nhawfal Juma'at.

Really nice works which responded really well to the the environment/ location.

You must really catch this exhibition before it closes. General feedback is that most people enjoyed it really much.

Amongst these artists are some are our favourite of this cohort.

Now they just need to get into the mainstream gallery or commercial scene.
