Aiman - The Evolution of Eian & Eien
May
16
to Aug 15

Aiman - The Evolution of Eian & Eien

Art Porters Gallery is delighted to present Aiman’s second solo exhibition, The Evolution of Eian & Eien – an exhibition meant to challenge our perception of normalcy and how far we as humans are willing to push boundaries. The story draws from fairytale narratives, often interweaving tenderness and cruelty, with references of religious iconography, eroticism, and mythology. A fantastical world, it fast-tracks us into a parallel existence, where advancements in technology, molecular biology and globalisation have pushed the confines of the evolutionary process, leading to the emergence of anatomically modern humans adapted to an increasingly challenging environment. In this enchanted world, subjects, through the wonders of evolution and born with the power of anti-gravity, are able to weave through different time portals, often simultaneously experiencing parallel realities from drastically different times.

Art Porters Gallery
64 Spottiswoode Park Road,
Singapore 088652

Opening Hours: Tuesday-Sunday 10.30am – 7.00pm | Monday by appointment

REDSEA Gallery presents ‘All the King's Horses’  by American artist, Lydia Janssen

to Feb 26

REDSEA Gallery presents ‘All the King's Horses’ by American artist, Lydia Janssen

American artist, Lydia Janssen will make her Singapore debut with her latest body of works at REDSEA Gallery, located at Dempsey Hill, opening 27 January 2018. ‘All the King's Horses’ is a painted collection of short stories presented on large canvasses spanning the last five years since the former dancer, turned artist, relocated to Singapore from New York City.

As a former professional dancer who suffered several injuries which left her unable to dance, Singapore-based, American artist Lydia Janssen illustrates the raw and beautiful chaos of putting herself back together again thru the fluid brushtrokes on her canvas. Illustrating her emotional and physical journey from dancer to painter, her works are an autobiography of her relationship with her body with moving images, which take on a life of their own which are at once powerful and moving.

A visceral follower of the powerful female artists who dominate the world of feminist artists, such as Cecily Brown, Janssen invites the viewer to witness her sometimes chaotic rebirth thru a palpable authenticity. Earthy clay-like colour tones of ochre, umber and mustard mixed with vivid shades of blues and greens are like music to the eyes to evoke a softer remeniscence of the cave-like drawings ofWilliam de Kooning.

‘All the King’s Horses’, a title taken from the famous English nursery rhyme, is a rich tapestry of body parts such as breasts, arms and feet, animals including horses, numbers, and other seemingly random objects figuratively woven together in abstract expressionist form, tell a story and elucidate a complex thought process, capturing the primal movements in her mind, which previously came from her body.

“Humpty gets up, falls again and so on, and so on….lesson learning, finding beauty in the unbeautiful, order in the disarray, changing course and moving through life”, says Janssen as the viewer is enticed to examine further ideas which may disturb, but also delight, as they find their own meaning in Janssen’s mad dance of personal discovery.

‘All the King’s Horses’ will run until 25 February 2018.
