Ronnie Ford
Rhythms of Nature by Ronnie Ford

Ford's unique texturescapes evolved from his studies of sculpture and optical arts. An artist of versatility and great originality, he has spent time in the Far East, during which he acquired an artistic acumen that challenges western perspectives and became inspired to explore the Chinese idea of taking a journey through the landscapes. The landscapes are all about preserving the integrity of the place while expressing feelings that were awakened when he was there. It began with Ford studying the landscapes, and in time, detaching himself from it to filter out the unnecessary details. Using his memory, he captures the spirit of what he has seen on his canvasses, creating powerful impressions, rather than representations, of the place. Ode To Art is delighted to present his second solo exhibition in Singapore, Rhythms of Nature.
Chin Chun Wah
Moments by Chin Chun Wah

As a prolific artist in the pen and wash technique, Singaporean artist Chin Chun Wah Harry’s comeback is seen as a natural and inevitable transition after a 43-years hiatus. Most of his earlier works are of old Singapore street scenes, especially those in Chinatown, the Singapore River and its surrounding areas—all favorite spots for outdoor sketching and painting by Singapore artists, even today. Chin’s skillful sketching techniques and perfect perspectives can be seen in the way he depict scenes with light, deft strokes rendered within minutes. Ode to Art is delighted to present Chin Chun Wah Harry’s Moments, a tribute to Singapore’s history of urbanization and modernization.

Wu Qiong
Here and Now (在这里)

Internationally acclaimed sculptor and painter Wu Qiong is back in town to present his exhibition, Here and Now. This exhibition is his open invitation into a state of consciousness replete with luscious dreamscapes, whimsical characters and compositions. His newer masterpieces are more subtle, allowing more open-ended interpretations and portraying more powerful emotions and feelings. These visceral feelings are communicated through postures, facial expressions and depiction of characters. This allows for more emphasis on individual characters and development of their emotions. Wu’s distinctive cartoon style is obvious, and it resonates with the aesthetic of a generation absorbed with graphic novels, comics, digital worlds, animation and gaming. The characters have their eyes closed and mouths agape. Their upturned faces and shut eyes suggest that havoc is unfolding in their dreams. Wu hopes to tap upon this notion through the recurring use of this facial expression, allowing viewers to draw their own associations with the different scenarios presented in his works. “Here and Now represents an entry point into a state of mind or being, with no single definition or explanation as to where ‘here’ is. I want to engage in a dialogue with viewers, introducing scenarios that would provoke thought or trigger memories and experiences. I want to highlight the wealth of emotions contained within my characters. They are a manifestation of common emotions and considerations of society; hopefully these feelings will resonate with viewers even if the situations and contexts, which I present them in, do not,” says Wu.

Y Indra Wahyu N
Urban Dreamtime

Amongst whirlwind colour and dizzying brushstroke illusions lie the astute observations of a social thinker, observing the modern world from eyes that acutely bring to life the vistas behind streams of consciousness.

Insightful, honest, and yet filled with the cascading motion of aesthetic flow, the art of Indra Wahyu is a flurry of snapshot reality, encased in fantastical imagery.
