A Mundane Life
Oil on Canvas
90 x 120 cm

I was fascinated with how light gives a sense of warmth and a homely feeling. It is a subtle feeling hidden in our everyday life. The painting tries to capture it through 9 storeys of households, where each is different and unique. The colours used are dull but warm coloured, combining to maximise that feeling of warmth in a mundane life. Every household was referenced from real life, and I pieced them together to form a scene resembling the front view of a HDB flat.
