1/6 Vincent Hoisington: Painter, Decorator

What Interior designer, painter, sculptor, and most importantly, pioneer in aluminum art—Vincent Hoisington wore many hats as one of Singapore's most highly regarded artists, who often fell under the radar in the art history books. Before his untimely death in 1972, Hoisington's murals were commissioned by the likes of Singapore Polytechnic, the Cathay Building and Raffles Hotel Singapore, which before it's recent refurbishment, was located at the Writer's Bar for guests to appreciate.

Hosted by Art Agenda, S.E.A. at The Modern Space from this Friday till mid-August, audiences are given a rare opportunity to get up close with ten of Hoisington's works. With half of them on loan from various private collectors, it includes a range of forms from early flower still life paintings to aluminum works before his death—each as a glimpse that represents the different phases of his life.

5/6 Contemplate: A Solo Exhibition by Jason Lim

What Gajah Gallery plays host to one of Singapore's master ceramist and performance artist, Jason Lim's solo exhibition, Contemplate. Returning with a new series of ceramic pieces that transports the viewers back to smaller, and arguably more mundane moments of daily life, the works take inspiration from tree branches, stones and rocks—inanimate objects that symbolises the passage of time and record of history to Lim. The works, upon first look, seem oddly molded and take up strange shapes and forms, but Lim encourages viewers to relate its visual aesthetic to nature's vast landscape. By drawing upon this relationship, he hopes to incite more appreciation to viewers for the everyday things that are often overlooked or taken for granted.
