ARTIST STATEMENT

What is in the space around us and near us? How do we see the things in this space as artists? In the background, it is the estate we live in and the shopping malls we go to. Nearer to the foreground, it is the people, things and the school we study in. This is the space we live in and interact with. Most of all, WE belong to and are part of this space  

TEACHER MENTOR’S COMMENT
To grasp the exhibition theme of space, our P2 children explored the idea from 2 angles: space as an artist would see it (i.e. foreground and background) and space that is literal (i.e. the things that constitute the space around them). The artwork was created by combining the 2 angles. The end-product represents the children’s immediate world, space and living environment. ~ Mr Mark Low and Mdm Adeline Chua.
