Jimmy Ong (b.1964), Singapore - United States

Banana Breeze (Remembrance of Trees Past, Nassim Hill Atelier)

Drawing, Charcoal on paper, 152x152cm , 2014
Location:  The Nassim Basement 1, Singapore

 

Jimmy Ong stayed at Nassim Hill from 1993-1995. So when commissioned by CapitaLand to create a series of drawings for The Nassim, he was able to reminisce and revisit the area on which what are colloquially known as black and white houses are situated. Ong, known for his charcoal drawings, skillfully employs the medium in the style of chairoscuro - dramatically contrasted shadow and light - a fitting remembrance of the black and white houses.
