A Tear in Culture
Acrylic on Canvas
59.4 x 42 cm

This artwork addresses the issue of disappearing Peranakan culture that is evident in Singapore culture today. The tears on the artwork are indications of the distinct loss of culture. However, I would like to portray the Peranakan woman in the foreground smiling, symbolising that there is still hope in preserving this culture from being forgotten.
