Fernan Escora's Opening Reception: Playing with Intimacy

On July 21, 2010 the opening reception for Fernan Escora's exhibition "Playing with Intimacy" took place. It was a successful event as guests got a chance to appreciate Fernan's artwork and to speak to the esteemed artist himself.

Playing with Intimacy can be described as a thoughtful pause that is at the same time, a catharsis. It is an honest assessment of the intricacies of relationships and how the differences in expectations each person has affects the tenuous balance adversely. With parallel lines that bump against each other, the artist creates complex pictures that hint to an even more complex reality. With many darkened areas of heavily intersecting lines that figure in the background of the works is pathos emptying itself, laying the feeling bare to the feelings bare to the spectator.

Thank you to all those who came last night to support us :) For those who missed the opening, please come to White Canvas Gallery soon to view Fernan's work!

Tiong Bahru Sketchwalk

Tiong Bahru Sketch Walk July 17th, 2010.

To mark the end of the exhibition, a sketch walk was organized on July 17th, where 4 artists and guests walked around Tiong Bahru and sketched the neighborhood. The four artists include Tia, Don, Paul and Miel.

Despite the humid weather, guests and artists alike created exciting works. The turnout was great. Sketches completed on this day can be a part of the national day community banner that will be displayed at Seng Poh Tea Garden.

White Canvas Gallery is very grateful to have been embraced by the Tiong Bahru community. This sketch walk is one way the gallery would like to express its gratitude and commitment towards this wonderful community. Thank you to all who participated and made our first official exhibition such a success.

*The opening reception for the upcoming exhibition will be on July 21, at 7pm @ the gallery. Free cocktails will be provided.
