Even tho we don’t experience wintery snow here in Singapore, it’s still magical and dreamy if you close your eyes and let your mind wander! Enjoy!
This February’s dröm sessions calls for Swedish illustration goodness! This session, we speak to Swedish illustrator/artist – Camilla Engman! Let’s start our little adventure with her as we find out a wee bit more about her as we go behind the canvas of her art pieces.
Distant Friends, postcards - a collaboration with Ana Ventura
A collaboration between Camilla & Elisabeth Dunker
Pia König’s and Camilla Engman’s collaboration
Camilla’s little collections of odds & ends.
One encouraging advice Camilla left us with – “Have fun! Don’t try too hard to find your own voice, it will come when you least expect it if you just let go.”

On Wednesday, we finally popped by the “Makanlah Buah-Buahan Tempatan – Singapura” exhibition! An art exhibition about national fruits, to Singapore. And here’s sharing some of our favourites! :)
• The Durian depicted by Parabole (Paolo Ty & Karen) through a short film and
• The Pineapple depicted by The Strangely Good (Michelle & Akane).
Last Sunday, we headed for a film screening that documented the lives of art collectors – Herb & Dorothy, shown at The Arts house. A documentary depicting the passionate lives behind this endearing and inspiring couple.
Words could never describe how moved we were by the passion & faith that Herb & Dorothy had for art, and also for the love between Herb and Dorothy. Both of them were so cute, endearing and inspiring. They ate, lived and breathed passion. The best part was to be able to see Dorothy up close in person, at the end of the film screening!! That totally blew our minds away!
This is a portrait of Herb & Dorothy – a portrayal of both their reactions when they looked at artworks in exhibitions. Herb would usually be very intense and focus straight into his favourite artwork, thus the “horizontal” position. And on the contrary, Dorothy would take things a little slower, thus her more relaxed and “vertical” posture. This portrait almost forms an invisible grid!
Benny shared that Dorothy had asked to visit Marina Bay Sands Singapore and the crew was pleasantly surprised at first, but later realized the reason was that Dorothy knew that one of Sol LeWitte’s painting was there. We heard from Benny that it was an emotional moment for Dorothy and she broke down in tears when she was standing amidst Sol LeWitte’s enormous artwork in MBS, Singapore.
Dorothy was brought to Art Stage Singapore to view the works of our local art pieces, and later gently requested not to be brought to further art shows as they reminded her very much of her journey with her husband, Herb. Hearing this moved me to tears.
Creativity is pretty much suppressed & silenced when everything is about winning a price war, & survival of the richest. Really hope to break such mentalities and stigmas we have here in our sunny island, set in the sea. Hopefully someday, perseverance & passion will eventually win the battle!
