There were many pieces which struck me as interesting during the Art Stage Singapore 2011 last week. Did you see me at the vernissage? I took plenty of photos and decided it’s best to split the blog coverage into two posts. Here’s Part 1 and I’m gonna dive right into my favourite pieces.
1. First up is my most favouritest piece (I’m kinda into the whole Honeysuckle/Coral Rose colors at the moment- in keeping with the 2011 Pantone Color of the Year and all, but hey that’ll a totally different blog post). This piece is gorgeous, it’s a photo of winter Amaryliss and the scale! Oh, the scale is friggin’ grand… makes me wanna jump into and start rolling around the creamy peach-colored petals. I can only wish for a wall space big enough at home to display this piece. One day, oh one day, when I move into a loft with ultra high ceilings. ;p *droolz*
2. Moving on next, an oil painting by Chinese artist Zhu Yi-Yong. This painting of a young Chinese girl playing with a red string, shaped into a star is so captivating. I love how the red string jumped off the black and white background, and upon closer inspection, the artist had used small brush strokes to give the string additional dimension. I wish I can bring this home too.

4. I saw these two pieces by Taiwanese artist Hung Tung-Lu at the
8. Photographs by Shen Chao Liang. My photo doesn’t do this any justice at all, it’s best to check out his work online.
Okay folks, that’s all for this part. Follow me with more pictures in Part 2!
