“Collagist Concoctions” is a joint exhibition between artists Ang Ping Ping and Chen Ziwei. The exhibition introduces a mixed-media style – the combination of collage and painting into subject matters about representation and interpretation of everyday social life and memory of Singaporeans. Presented by two female artists, it showcases works that depict a woman artist’s way of seeing, interpreting and expressing her thoughts and feelings about the people and places that has affected her. In effect contributing to the current body of art by women artists in Singapore.
Despite working in similar medium, works of each artist is distinctive. Each of their styles exudes a unique character through the choice of collage material used, the manner in which collage and painting are incorporated, and the selection of subject matter. Ping Ping paints in water-soluble oils and composes her works based on subjects of nature and family, whereas Ziwei paints in acrylic and creates works based on sites of memory that she represents as symbols.
