This painting was done in Garden by the Bay during the Garden Festival in 2016. The painting captures a contrast of the modern with the lustrous greenery of the garden. It depicts the Singaporean lifestyle that is marked by the rapid development of modernity, yet seeks to retreat into healing nature. The style is impressionistic: the harsh, restrictive and straight lines of the building depicts the regimental modern life, and contrast with the fluid and vibrant colours of the vegetation, which depicts the liberating and vibrant life with nature that Singaporeans yearn to retreat into.
