Running MONOCIRCUS jointly with me is my partner, Lim Shing Ee, a.k.a. Shing,
who is a painter/artist backed by numerous exhibitions in various countries.
Shing has been consistently creating paintings, drawings, sculptural objects as well as
installations and public art over the last 15 years.
Over the years, Shing has also been painting art works as requested by friends and aquaintances.
Now as one of the many works of MONOCIRCUS, we are specially offering Everyone out there,
this opportunity to purchase a Made-To-Order Painting by Shing.
What are your thoughts about purchasing an artwork?
A typical case could be to 'search' the art market for a work that best suits your taste as well as
the space where the work is to be displayed? And if and when the 'ideal' artwork is ever to be found,
it could have most likely been overly costly, posing more difficulties over the deciding upon whether or not
to make the purchase.
We have been trying to think up a way which will let you love the artwork you own,
a way to induce a better sense of affinity and attachment between you and the artwork you own.
The thought led us upon this idea of Made-To-Order Paintings.
Paintings or artworks have a diversity of genre and style.
Shing's work takes on a semi-figurative reinterpretation of daily encounters and emotions.
A feature to note about our Made-To-Order Painting, despite being called 'Made-To-Order',
is that the resultant Painting is entirely planned and created by the artist.
You, who is going to own this painting, will be asked to answer a series of 'hint' questions
that will help us understand and know you better.
Base on these hints, Shing will construct the visual foundation and structures and
develop a pictorial story meant for just you!
A painting will require 1 to a few months to complete.
Upon requests, you may also request to be notified at various work-in-progress stages.
We hope in the process, you will enjoy and appreciate this 'sharing' and 'collaborating'
in the making process of YOUR painting.
A classical painting, displayed in a museum or gallery,
belonged to a specific owner at a specific period of time and had a specific creator.
You are the owner in this loop and we want you to be a part of this creative process.
Paintings, unlike other visual graphic works, have an intriguing ability to metaphorically
piece together our everyday memories and emotions.
Painting also seems to have the power to transform itself with time and circumstance.
Looking at a painting over again at different pinpoints of Time, seems to evoke different sensations
and spark new discoveries.
