In Jane Eyre, a novel written by Charlotte Brontë, the author wrote: "Spring drew on...and a greenness grew over those brown beds, which, freshening daily, suggested the thought that Hope traversed them at night, and left each morning brighter traces of her steps." Indeed, Spring is a season of hope, bringing new beginnings and brimming with vitality.
Presented by Sky One Art Gallery, "Reawakening: Collection of Tan Oe Pang's Chinese Ink Paintings, 1990s-2000s" is a solo art exhibition by Singaporean artist Tan Oe Pang. The exhibition runs from 31 March – 11 April 2021, featuring a private collection of 15 vibrant Chinese ink artworks painted in the earlier period of 1990s-2000s. Drawing inspiration from the abundant nature, subjects depicted include pink plum blossoms, spirited sparrows, busy bees, extraordinary eagle, frolicsome frogs and scenic landscapes. It is hoped that the series of invigorating artworks will uplift spirits, inject positivity and spread a little joy of the spring season as we strive to adapt in the face of an ongoing global pandemic.
The Chinese ink paintings were mounted as hanging scrolls and they are available to purchase.
