“Three Rooms” is a group exhibition by three Singapore-based women artists Queenie Kou, Shyama Nadimpalli and Sandy Liu. Through their individual spaces, each a small room, the artists share their own personal perspectives as their unique stories unfold.
Queenie pays tribute to the monochromatic everyday objects such as the grass, twigs, and wood which are playing second fiddle to the colourful flowers. Through her artist’s lens, she lends a new meaning to the often overlooked beauty that exists in our daily life.
Shyama presents a series of romanticism sublime landscape paintings with beautiful array of colour. Shining a spotlight on dancers in splashy colour, capturing their vitality, passion and rhythmic dance movement, her second series of works are visually contrasting. Her works tell the vivid stories of moments in life that leave a long impression to come.
Sandy features a series of works that focuses on the youth today and explores how their perspectives are shaped by the environmental, societal and cultural factors that surround them. Her second series of abstract works created with the photo transfer technique illustrates the Hong Kong street unrest. As a Hongkonger, Sandy voices her concerns and hopes for an early resolution to the crisis.
The show opens on Oct 26 2019 (Sat) at the gallery space at 21A Arab Street and will be on view till 26 Nov 2019.
