MY JOURNEY is a showcase of Chng Seok Tin’s latest artworks that were never exhibited before. It comprises works of sculptures, paintings, prints and literature, including a special poem written for VSA, marking her 25th year of working with the organization, since its inception.
A woman of vigour and life, Chng completed her works while battling through lung cancer and living with a deteriorated eyesight. As she conquers each of her obstacles in life, her strength of character is transferred to her artworks, which have become an inspiration to many local artists, and especially those with disabilities.
Born in 1946, Chng contributed largely to the local arts scene by teaching arts and language at various institutions. She taught at LASALLE College of the Arts before losing her eyesight in a tragic incident, which was the biggest turning point in her career and life. With the support of her loved ones, Chng gained the courage and motivation to continue her career in teaching and the arts and has become one of Singapore’s celebrated female artist.
