Global Landscapes Singapore-An Immersive Art Exhibition by Internationally Acclaimed Artist
November 4, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - November 5, 2022 @ 5:00 pmFree
On Thursday 3 November 2022, the Grammy-nominated British composer, artist and co-founder of production company Sisters Grimm, Ella Spira MBE, will launch her latest art project, ‘Global Landscapes Singapore’ at Art Now gallery, in the Raffles Hotel Arcade, unveiling her work as a visual artist.
The launch will open with an ‘In conversation with Ella Spira MBE” hosted by Alice Black, former director of The Design Museum London and founder of ArtULTRA. The invitation only event will shed light on the process, influences, inspiration, and intention of Spira as a painter, giving context to the artworks created in Singapore.
Global Landscape Singapore celebrates the richness of life in and around the island through six individual paintings and a series of charcoals. In Singapore, Spira has been able to show a city that values natural resources and has kept nature as part of its urban landscape. From pockets of green punctuating the financial area of the city to the thriving marine trade, which has been part of its backdrop for centuries. Spira first came to Singapore for work in 2015, but she is painting the city for the first time this year.
The paintings are accompanied by photographs taken by Singaporean photographer Rebecca Toh and an evocative score composed by Spira. This score features Singaporean cellist Olivia Chuang and incorporates the sound of Rebecca’s camera click as well as the sound of Singapore thunder storms. It will be released on YouTube (https://www.youtube.com/c/SistersGrimm) on w/c 17 October with a video featuring Toh’s photography.
Global Landscapes Singapore will be opened to the public with free entry on the 4th November at 12-7pm and 5th of November at 12 – 5pm.
