ABOUT THE WORK

Vase

11cm x 11cm x 19cm

Roughness of the clay represents different obstacles I face in life. I have tried to overcome the obstacles with gusto. This series of ten art pieces are done with the pinching technique, a technique I have been trying to refine and improve. The same way that I have tried to ‘refine’ myself to face and overcome obstacles in life. The finished products, however, speak of my burgeoning success in creating functional art pieces despite their rough texture. It is metamorphosis, an emergence from my past to create something beautiful.

Yellow Ribbon VAH

Singapore

In line with the Singapore Prison Service’s mission to rehabilitate offenders for a safer Singapore, the Visual Arts Hub (VAH) was set up in Changi Prison Complex in 2009. VAH aims to give every inmate artist a blank canvas to re-paint his life, nurture his artistic potential, encourage creative insights and facilitate a positive change in mindset. Through the visual arts programme offered at VAH, inmate artists have the opportunity to unlock their potential and contribute to the community in meaningful ways.

Yellow Ribbon Singapore is a statutory board under the Ministry of Home Affairs which helps inmates and ex-offenders rebuild their lives and lower the recidivism rate through career and skills development, with an effective aftercare support network. Through championing second chances and rehabilitating ex-offenders, Yellow Ribbon Singapore hopes to achieve a safer and more inclusive Singapore where inmates and ex-offenders are adequately supported in their rehabilitation and reintegration journey.
