Passion in Living – Paintings of Indonesia is Low Hai Hong’s tribute to his birth place Indonesia. He grew up in Indonesia and moved to Singapore at the age of five. He often returns home to visit his relatives residing in Jambi and Jakarta, and has embarked on numerous trips to Bali with his contemporaries to capture the engaging sights and sounds of Indonesia and her people. This selection of 50 works, some of which will be shown to the public for the first time, offers Low’s observations and sentiments through painting. The artworks on show will be marked by the Indonesians’ fervour for life, demonstrating the vibrancy of marketplaces, the magnetism of festive ceremonial processions, the mystical Wayang Kulit, the dramatic tension of cockfighting and the back-breaking labour witnessed at the fishing villages.
