Opera Gallery Singapore presents Joy, for now, a collection of new works by British artist George Morton-Clark, in his first ever solo exhibition in Singapore.
Joy, for now is as the title suggests, a rolloff-the-tongue joy, a celebration of run-ofthe-mill moments. In a world where we are constantly told that uncertainty could be just around the corner, there is a kind of joy that exists in the present, always within reach if we just look, even if it means forgetting the world for one instant. Collectively, we have all learned to never take anything for granted anymore, to recognise that the little things are never unimportant.
In this series, Morton-Clark’s characters are often tantalising syntheses of abstract elements, all living in and navigating their own mysterious universe of chance encounters and ambiguous happenings. But there are no guises and no charades; just honest characters perhaps each with their own allegorical stories.
Venue: Opera Gallery Singapore, 2 Orchard Turn, #02-16 ION Orchard, Singapore 238801
