NOON ICTUS
(3D prints, dimensions variable, painted green shelving, 30cm x 60cm x 30cm)

Chinese ink and Western oils, a fusion of East and West. Such were the endeavors of the practices of many post-war Chinese migrant painters in Singapore. The privileging of a Western form while echoing ones’ own roots. The migration to a new land mirrored in the adoption of a new episteme, whereby the bridging to one’s past marks the breakage from tradition.

noon ictus is a series of 3D prints of flora (chrysanthemums, sunflowers, bamboo) often-painted by these migrant painters. Modeled and rendered in the painting styles common in that era.
