Art is an integral part of our existence. It brings inspiration and life to our otherwise routinary and banal existence. I hold a great amount of appreciation for art / artists in general. I think partly because I was never a good one myself. I love it, nonetheless. After realizing that I’ll never be a brilliant writer like the ones who wrote the books i hoarded, I became more inclined to music. I was in to The Beatles, The Cars, Eagles, Spice Girls, boy bands, James Taylor and even the more contemporary, lousy ones. It did help that my dad was a musician by heart. So, growing up, music was always a part of our home. It’s that certain look artists have that kinda draws me in. I saw it whenever my dad is playing his guitars and i saw it when i went to an Incubus concert. It’s the look of passion, like everything is blocked out and all you have is that moment of doing the only thing you want to do in life. It’s like the only thing that matters is right there at that moment and you just have to breathe in all the positivity and energy. Exquisite.
After 28 years of existence, i finally visited an art museum. I wouldn’t say that it was the most breath-taking experience of my life but it did amaze me in more ways than one. If more people would appreciate and get involved with any form of art, I think living would be much more harmonious ultimately because it encourages a lot of self-reflection. Also, art is multifaceted and abstract in nature making it a need for us to get in touch with our real selves, no pretensions whatsoever.
The Singapore Art Museum contains the national contemporary art collection of Singapore. SAM is home to the world’s largest public collection of modern and contemporary Southeast Asian artworks, with a growing collection of international contemporary art.
Here are some of the collections that featured artists all over Asia.
Let me point out that the film strip-made horse shown above is made by a Filipino artist based in Baguio City. One female guide eagerly informed us that it’s a must-see. It didn’t disappoint. It was made of discarded film strips collected by the artist who then rolled it to a horn shaped material, finally piecing it up together to form a horse - the size of a real adult one. So proud! ;)
I was also glad that one of my closest friend was there to share the joy. Here are some of our vanity shots - clearly not one of our expertise but we do our best. ^-^
My pleasure! Ciao! :D
ABOUTordinary but complicated. outside looking in. a thousand places in one mind.
