With his latest solo exhibition, “After all these years”, Singaporean artist Safaruddin Bin Abdul Hamid, a.k.a. "Dyn," once again explores some of Singapore’s historical buildings that have been given a new lease of life, from the former Parliament house, now theArts House, to a colonial administrative building that is now the Asian Civilizations Museum, and a power station transformed to a club destination, St. James Power Station.
In 2011, Dyn had also featured familiar local buildings using soft edges and shadowy details to create a nostalgic and dreamlike quality to the structures. This time, the artist uses a super flat composition with crisp edges in candy colors to denote the longevity and on-going strong presence these buildings have in Singaporeans’ our daily lives.
"After all these years" runs until 28 March at Chan Hampe Galleries.
