Divine : Treasures of the Forest Art Exhibition
11.4.2020 - 11.6.2020
Divine is how we love to describe the treasures of our forest all over the world. In conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the World Earth Day, 8 artists who are passionate about nature have gathered together to express their own interpretation on what divinity of the treasure of the forest is to them.
Acknowledging the global theme of the World Earth Day, climate action and the current pandemic situation of novel coronavirus that the whole wide world is currently in, we would like to appreciate how Mother Earth has seen signs of healing. We hope through this exhibition, those healing and divinity can be amplified, and may art is used as one of the tools and voice to help restore the treasures of our forest to its pristine divinity.
The 8 participating artists here are from diverse backgrounds and experience. While most are using acrylic on canvas as their medium of choice, there is also one watercolour artist who is making her debut show with us, and to add on to the interesting variance, one decoupage artist is also amongst the 8.
The theme of this exhibition has been set since the end of last year, and the participating artists have been selected a few months before this. Given the current pandemic situation and the Movement Control Order / Restricted Movement Order that our country is currently in, we are very well aware that this exhibition is not able to commence it the traditional way that we are used to.
In view of that, in the spirit of adapting to the ever changing situation of the world and utilising the gift of technology, we are going to proceed with the launching and opening of this exhibition as scheduled on 11 April 2020, 3.00 pm through virtual platforms.
