Memories are made of This

There's a small but evocative exhibition at the Singapore Art Museum of the ephemera of Singapore artist Lim Cheng Hoe. Diaries, sketchbooks and letters conjure up the era and life of this Singapore artist. A letter from his art teacher and friend is particularly touching - he has a premonition of his death when he doesn't receive birthday or christmas greetings for the first time in forty years.

Light and Shelter

Nice to see my favorite deity, Kuan Yin enjoying well lit and sheltered accommodation in Singapore.
