Dale Chihuly: Glass in Bloom has been extended till 3 October 2021. As part of the extension, four local artists will be displaying their artworks to complement the Dale Chihuly: Glass in Bloom exhibition from 17 September onwards. These artworks will be specially located at different locations in the exhibition areas. The exclusive showcase will be set against the impressive glass sculptures by Chihuly.
Four new artists at Dale Chihuly: Glass in Bloom
The first artist is Tunku Khalsom who will be displaying The Colours That Surround Us (2021). This work is inspired by colours in the world, from the flora and fauna to the sunsets and sunrises. Khalsom’s work is often recognised by bold and colourful expressions and she took on concepts similar to Chihuly as inspiration.
There will also be works by Florence Ng, a pioneer glass artist, who will display Circle of Life (2021). The artwork is inspired by the stamen of the flower, which is the part of the flower that is often overlooked but very integral to the continuation of life. The art piece is made in metal and cast and blown glass, holding the elements in perfect balance in a circular sculptural form.
The third artist is Jahan Loh, a well-known contemporary artist based in Singapore will be displaying a bronze artwork titled Adam and Eve (2018). The art piece was part of an exhibition Jahan presented, which delved deep into the topic of existentialism, questioning the origins of humanity through the book of Genesis. Fusing religious iconography from the Renaissance with science-fiction, pop-art influences, he challenges audiences to consider ideas of good and evil as raised in Genesis.
The fourth artist’s work to keep an eye out for is Koh Dawn, a Paper Sculpture Artist, who will display Discover Your True Self (2021). This sculpture is a re-interpretation of Dawn’s original life-sized paper sculpture artwork for Discover Your True Self (2020). The art piece is made from offcut paper, wires, watercolour and acrylic materials and wallpaper and takes the form of a Renaissance painting of a flower arrangement.
