“The Clothespeg Project launched in Perth WA in 2007, the concept is based  around these simple instructions…submit any style of work, about any theme  you like, with whatever content you want – there is no limitation other than size.

SURFACE 1°22

This is my new project, and perhaps an excuse for falling off the blogging sphere…?

SURFACE 1°22 is a collective featuring individuals from diversely trained backgrounds working in Singapore’s creative industries from Fine Artists to Interior, Textile and Fashion Designers. The opening of SURFACE 1°22 (the exhibition) showcased a variety of textile manipulations and surface applications exploring themes of compatibility and crossover between processes and techniques to create pieces that can be both seen and touched.

The first SURFACE 1°22 exhibition was held in November @ ICAS Project Space. The focus of this exhibition was on textile manipulations and surface applications. Contributors included Deborah McKellar, Maria Walf, Michy Witchy, Tang Wai Wah, Susie Rees, Mike Tay, Sarah Johnson, Goh Ling Ling and Emily Wills.

Deepavali saw Little India all lit up. The twinkling colours were beautiful, and allowed the area a magical late night feel… x



Hello world!

Singapore has been wrongly accused of being culturally devoid in the creative industries.

I don’t buy it.

But when word’s out Singapore’s Fashion Festival will be opened by Christian Lacroix and closed by Vivienne Westwood, (exciting as that is) one has to ask – where is all the local talent? Why aren’t they opening? It’s upsetting that this major cultural event has invested in big name overseas exports instead of supporting local, emerging and uniquely Singaporean fashion. Fashion festivals are an opportunity for soap-boxing; to show off a country’s unique and creative talent.

Considering the number of stellar art and design schools in the country, it would be fair to assume there is a mass fringe movement of sub-cultural artists, photographers, and designers invloved in numerous collaborative projects on an international level.

It’s my aim to introduce them to you and the world.

I call this project Sing Style – a search for Singapore’s style vernacular.
