Impressionistic Collection is a collector showcase of some of the finest impressionistic artworks by second-generation Singaporean artists.
The artists represented are well versed in their choice of artistic mediums. Ang Ah Tee and Choy Weng Yang are two veterans in painting in acrylic. They approach the Western medium with free application with unrestraint expression, capturing the vibrancy and life of their landscape. While Ang paints with a palette knife, creating broad strokes of colour to express the world around him, Choy chooses the brush to create quick strokes to portray the buzz of the city.
Chinese ink and calligraphy are well represented by masters such as Lim Tze Peng and Hong Ling. Lim Tze Peng is a Cultural Medallion recipient, recognised for his innovation by pushing the boundaries of traditional calligraphy, with the bold injection of colour alongside dynamic brushstrokes. Hong Ling has a masterful grasp of the beauty of Chinese ink. He has the ability to create invigorating atmosphere found in the natural landscape.
