        CHEN CHONG SWEE : Fishing Village

        Est: RM35,000 - RM65,000

        Chen Chong Swee—a.k.a. Chen Zongrui and a.k.a. Chen Kai—was born in 1910 in Guangdong, China, and studied art at the Xinhua Academy of Fine Arts in Shanghai. In the early 1930s, he migrated first to Malaysia then to Singapore where he taught art at various secondary schools founded by overseas Chinese merchants, including Tao Nan School, Tuan Mong High School, Chinese High School and Chung Cheng High School, as well as the Teachers' Training College Singapore (now the National Institute of Education). He would also teach as a Chinese ink painting lecturer at the newly established Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts. Around that time, he also co-founded the Salon Art Society (now the Singapore Society of Chinese Artists) and won an award at the King George V Silver Jubilee Art Exhibition. In the diverse coastal and urban environments of tropical Malaya, Chen found a wealth of subjects to depict in his art. The vibrancy of the emerging Straits Settlements with its indigenous and migrant communities fired his artistic vision and he spent much time exploring locations and painting outdoors, capturing a multitude of sights and moods. His early landscape paintings from the 1940’s and 1950’s depict such varied subject matter as kampong life, riverscapes, quayside godowns, fishing jetties, churches, ice kacang vendors and tropical storms. This artwork is evident of his prowess and subject of his early landscape paintings.

      • CHEN CHONG SWEE : Balinese Lady
        Jun. 27, 2021

        CHEN CHONG SWEE : Balinese Lady

        Est: RM40,000 - RM70,000

        Chen Chong Swee was Singapore’s pioneering first-generation artists — an educator, writer and painter. Born in Guangdong, China in 1910, Chen migrated first to Malaysia then to Singapore in the early 1930’s and became a key figure in the development of the Nanyang style. A passionate art scholar and activist, he taught art at various schools, nurturing not only talent but also a sense of place. An analytical and prolific writer, he wrote many essays that contained keen observations and discourses on all aspects of visual arts. A realist painter, he was the first to depict Singapore subject matter in traditional Chinese ink as well as a pioneer in integrating Western and Chinese aesthetic traditions, painting the story of Singapore and its people with sensitivity and a sense of revelation. Chen believed that art should accurately represent its subject matter and be relevant to and easily understood by its audience, that it should communicate ideas and emotions, evoke empathy, and, at its most ideal, “embody truth, goodness and beauty”. In this work entitled ‘Balinese Lady, Chen brought forth his forte of amalgamating Western and Chinese traditions, through the simple painting of a Balinese lady dressed in their traditional outfit, arranging the offerings before her.

(26 3/4 x 17 2/3 in.) 陳宗瑞 亞答屋 彩墨紙本 一九八零年作Art in Post-War Singapore: A Dialogue with History and the PresentThe second generation of Singapore artists have distinguished themselves from their predecessors by pushing the creative boundaries of the established Nanyang style while retaining its essence through the employment of non-conventional materials and mediums in their works. Born in the 1930s and 40s, these artists came into their prime in the 1960s and 70s, working against a backdrop of turbulent times of political and social changes. The zeitgeist of the post-war era challenged these artists to break away from the conventional to find new ways in representing Nanyang style, and to forge new aesthetics that represent the country's social and cultural identity. These artists' resilience and zeal propelled them to venture into lesser used mediums such as batik, aluminium and woodcuts, to capture and express the conditions of their time. Multiple lots by some of the most well-established second-generation artists are presented at Bonhams this season to represent the diversity of artistic practices that were present in Singapore in the post-war era. Batik and woodcut were used as a new field of art to figuratively portray romantic scenes and colours of the Nanyang landscape and way of life by See Cheen Tee (1928-1996), Chieu Shuey Fook (b. 1934), Seah Kim Joo (b. 1939), and Tay Chee Toh (b. 1941). Aluminium, on the other hand, was employed by Vincent Hoisington in his metal relief work, to mould a new visual language to echo the nation's industrialisation and urban development. Abstraction as a visual style was adopted by Vincent Hoisington (1924-1972), Tay Bak Koi (b. 1939) and Thomas Yeo (b. 1936), as these artists departed from the figurative narrative to convey the mood and atmosphere of the time. The Nanyang Style cultivated by the first-generation artists was both encompassed and resisted by these second-generation artists. The collective efforts of these artists to explore and innovate in the post-war era hence further the historical dialogue of the Singaporean artistic identity that they were grappling with.
