For those who enjoyed the exhibition entitled “Journey to Infinity: Escher’s World of Wonder” held from now to February 2017 in Singapore’s ArtScience Museum at the Marina Bay Sands integrated Resort, ARNDT’s current exhibition is also another one to look out for.
Featuring original works by M.C. Escher and Richard Hassell, the artworks are exhibited side by side from now to 3rd December.
M.C. ESCHER: GRAPHIC MAGIC
The original prints are printed by Escher’s own hand and will include some of his most renowned works such as Day and Night, Concave and Convex, Print Gallery as well as smaller, affordable vignettes and ex libris work. An original drawing and watercolour is also on show.
RICHARD HASSELL: STRANGE CREATURES
Currently on show are 24 tessellation works on paper and 6 large works on aluminium by Richard Hassell. Based on complex aperiodic geometries, the tesellations embody fractals, and plane-filling curves. The geometry structures in the artworks are elements and can be found in the phenomena of the natura world.
The prints are made by hand-applied gilding which is a traditional skill in Java. This is made in collaboration with Baran Manansang who is an innovative, Indonesian textile artist. While the prints draw on Escher’s oeuvre, the designs also refer to South East Asian textiles, tribal art and the history of science and mathematics.
Two of Hassell’s works are also showing in Journey to Infinity: Escher’s World of Wonder.
