This evocative painting by Lim Tze Peng depicts the scene of a street in Old Singapore, in which numerous figures are seen flocking to a temple where a celebration appears to be ongoing. Lim uses a primarily monochromatic colour palette for this painting, rendering it with an aura of nostalgia that reminds the viewer that they are glimpsing into the past. Yet the vivid red of the lanterns and banners imbue the scene with vibrancy, reflecting the celebratory nature of this moment. Lim’s brushwork clearly defines the forms of the distinct architecture and figures, while his nuanced use of linear perspective creates a sense of depth, further drawing the viewer into the work and the fleeting moment of a bygone era.
