Postcard - Reframing Singapore River (Watercolour)

Watercolour, Singapore, artist, Choo Meng Foo, re-framing,Singapore River


Here is another set created with the watercolor painting of old Singapore River with the wooden boats. They form an astonishing view of the Singapore River and was once the main image featured  on the Singapore postcard. Now the iconic image is the MBS or the Art centre at the bay front. The cropping and re-framing creates an interesting relook at the details, 'modernizing' the old for the new consumption. The young at heart is excited by the brilliant dashes of saturated colours  and the pixellated square dots that coat the enlargement.
