Homemade showcases a new series of works by local artist Leow Wei Li. This series of paintings is made with items found in various supermarkets, baking, grocery, and hardware stores we see in the heartlands, that accompany the daily lives of everyday Singaporeans. Through exploring the materiality of these common household materials used for a variety of care from feeding and preserving to building and repairing homes, Wei Li’s paintings are rendered a celebration of Singaporean life. With each curious mish-mash of items, ingredients and materials, she creates a quiet vibrance that traces the labour of love and methods of care that goes into the making of life as we know it in our Little Red Dot.
