For the show at Madder Moon, Singapore in September/ October last year I had created a series of proverbs drawn from the rich ethnic diversity of Singapore. Geylang as I had named the piece in the picture above sold along with a few others.
The gallery had displayed what remained of my work until the end of the year. One fine day in November a visitor to the gallery took a liking to my work. He bought a piece called Rice, a Malay proverb -' If you plant grass you won't eat rice' and asked for details of my blog. The man went back,after researching my blog and bought a second piece entitled Murukku and asked if Geylang which he had seen in my blog post here,could be commissioned.
I was delighted to work on this commission.Here is a detail of the commissioned piece before I sent it on its way to Singapore.
The commissioned piece is the same size as the original but I've changed the colours so each one has a personality of its own.
The three pieces- Rice, Murukku and Geylang are going to give someone's kitchen a little local Singapore flavour.
