"Dyn" @ Chan Hampe Galleries, Singapore



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.
