Flashes of Brilliance: Selected works of Chen Wen Hsi

In celebration of Singapore’s 54th year of independence, The Private Museum (TPM) Singapore is pleased to present Flashes of Brilliance: Selected works of Chen Wen Hsi from the Collections of Johnny Quek and the Lewis Sisters.

 

In this special edition of the Collector Series, visitors will be able to view previously unseen works by the late Singaporean pioneer artist, Chen Wen Hsi. This is in line with the not-for-profit museum’s philanthropy work: to bridge the gap between artists, collectors and the public.

 

The exhibition brings together collectors Johnny Quek – a close friend and long-time patron of Chen as well as the Lewis sisters, Jennifer Lewis and Geraldine Lewis-Pereira. The selected works will be accompanied by stories and memories from the collectors, coupled with rare insights into Chen’s artistic process.

 

“We’re excited for the public to get to know Chen Wen Hsi through the sharing of his outstanding work and memories behind his works,” says Johnny Quek.

 

Drawing parallels to the size of our city-state, we will be shining the spotlight on Chen’s small-scale ink works for the first time, unlike past retrospective surveys of the esteemed artist. Join us in celebrating Singapore’s birthday month with the rich subject matters of the artist – that showcase the diverse cultural and natural landscape of our island – as well as the historical significance of Chen Wen Hsi and his body of paintings.
