On display at Madder Moon, Singapore are my embellished fragments. This is a group show of fiber artists from Singapore and India.
Delighted to be exhibiting my work alongside such talented artists.
I chose to represent the cultural mix of people of different diverse ethnic backgrounds through their proverbs. The ethnic diversity of Malay, Chinese, Tamil and many more makes Singapore such a vibrant lively place.
Patchwork, applique and embroidery went into making this piece. The material used is tussar silk.
A Murukku is a savoury crunchy treat which is usually in a spiral form. There are a number of different types made by Tamilians who hail from the southern Indian state of Tamil Nadu. So I've embroidered names of the different types of Murukku in the Tamil script.
There are Singaporean proverbs too I discovered.
Fiber to Fabric opened on 24th September and is there to view at Madder Moon until 5th October.
Do drop in if you are in Singapore and want to be culturally enriched!
