Journey to the Golden Land

Landscapes always have a metaphorical and symbolic dimension.
Both Soe Soe’s and Nyein Chan Su’s series are inspired by real spaces, Yangon and Inle lake. However, their meaning goes beyond the pure representation of these specific spaces.

The theme of the journey is an important one in Myanmar where, for many years, it was impossible to travel inside the country because of the civil war and outside the country due to the self isolation policy imposed by the government.

Nyein Shan Su, who prematurely passed away at the age of 47, was already sick when he started working on his Inle series, which retrospectively appears as a reflection on his life journey and the passage to another world.

Ko Z’ “Alien Series”, which represents the cosmos clearly alludes to the spiritual dimension of any human life. Two paintings from the “Red Peace” series refer to the Kachin Identity of the artist.

“Journey to the Golden Land” is part of the gallery weekend organised by AGAS: In November you can travel !

A surprise artist, never showcased in Singapore before, will be presented during the gallery weekend.
