“There Is Another Sky” is an artistic collaboration of two international artists based in Singapore – Alpana Vij, who is of Indian origin, and Susanne Paulli, who hails from Denmark.
Their striking contemporary works range from figurative to abstract art. Although the artists explore varied themes and painting styles, what brings them together is a shared interest in expressing their inner selves through their paintings. The common thread running through their art is the intuitive nature of their works – the use of colour, line and texture, to give form to fleeting feelings and emotions.
Alpana Vij’s artworks are an expression of her response to the environment she lives in, to the experiences that shape the world around her, and the people she comes across who impact her in some profound way.
Susanne’s painting style is Abstract Realism. Creating her art in an intuitive conversation with the canvas, Susanne paints what she remembers rather than what she sees in a quest to depict the emotions or spirituality behind the real life. Her works echo sensations of people she has met, places she has been and homes she has had, in an effort to convey different journeys under various skies.
The exhibition will open on October 2, 2015. It will include a live auction of two specially created collaborative works by the artists with the proceeds being donated to the Singapore Committee for UN Women towards rehabilitation of victims of crimes against women.
Furthermore, several special events for the public will be conducted during the exhibition period. These will include artist talks and story telling related to the exhibited artwork as well as other hands on creative projects.
