Dong Lee presents Roving Perspectives
Roving Perspectives brings together four decades of sketches by Singaporean architect Ma Pak Loong and oil paintings by award-winning Chinese artist Miao Yao Sheng.
Ma Pak Loong explores the space between work and commute, documenting parts of the city that have transformed or vanished. This never-seen-before collection traces Ma’s search for “an architectural well of space” in Singapore and abroad. Mirroring the architect, Miao Yao Sheng embeds himself within communities of people in villages to depict their historical architecture and present-day inhabitants.
Together, their dialogue transcends time and cultures, and their roving landscapes reflect the rapidly changing lifestyles and habitats around different places.
Roving Perspectives showcases 59 sketches by Mr Ma and 5 paintings by Mr Miao, and is exhibited at OCBC Wisma Atria from 1 August to 31 October 2023.
