“Golden Line” is a part of a series of artworks looking at the ships of Singapore. Being one of the busiest ports in the world, this is a subject matter that is iconically Singapore.
In the waters of this artwork you will see blue & white porcelain patterns, this is a reminder that these are Southeast Asian waters.
Some of my earliest memories here in Singapore have to do with the astounding views of a sea filled with ships. At night when all the lights come on, they truly look like a city on the water.
‘Golden line’, is bathed in golden light. Looking out to sea at various times of the day, you will see a golden light shining off the water's reflection.
The ships are a reminder that Singapore is a bustling international city constantly connected to other parts of the world. The ships come and go, reminding us of our own journey through life. From a distance these giant beauties are romanticised as they sail into the distance.
