art exhibition at MAAD in april

Artwork title:
Right now: I don’t need anything

The series of works to be featured in April by Xin is a continuation to her debut exhibition Pleased to Meet You at MAAD in February. With a total of 20 ink drawings and paintings, all works were snapped up by 5 buyers within the two days that the exhibition was held. Xin and her exhibition were also featured on Arts Central in March.

I’ve Lost an Ocean depicts the loss of love, but more precisely, the loss of a friend. This series portray scenes from movies that depicted and dealt with similar issues of accepting drastic changes and growing from these experiences. Xin (as she is affectionately known as) chose to use red as the predominant colour throughout the works. Red is used as a color to show love and intimacy as well as guilt and denial. The choice of basic colours used also reflects the rawness and simplicity of human emotions caught in the midst of complex human relationships.

Exhibition will be held at red dot design museum (concurrently with MAAD) on April 7 & 8, 11am - 7pm.

We will be selling our Maki Squarepatch wares there too :) See you!
