Capital Tower

Capital Tower Facade

Painting, Acrylic on canvas, 183x122cm
Artist:  Brendan Neiland (b.1941), United Kingdom
Location:  Capital Tower Level 37, Singapore


This piece is one of twelve photo-realism paintings commissioned by CapitaLand for Capital Tower before its completion. Neiland had visited the building while it was under construction. He drew inspiration from it and its surroundings for painting the part-elevations of the skyscrapers in this part of downtown Singapore and of Capital Tower itself. The elevations – in stone, glass and steel – are predominately geometrical, with the occasional palm trees giving relief to their regularity. What the artist wants to do is to bring the built forms and light, which are outside Capital Tower, into the building.
