Very often, people find abstract art dicult to understand and appreciatedue to the lack of realistic elements and recognisable forms. However, whileabstract art does not represent realistic figures, it is still capable of evokingemotions and sparking the imagination. This public art trail will introducesome prominent abstract sculptures in Singapore that span from the early20th Century when many artists began experimenting with different styles ofart and exploring forms, to today.
Located mostly around the Central Business District, these sculptures are amix of both local and international artists and represent a wide spectrum ofstyles and materials. It is interesting to see how abstraction is treated by bothforeign and local artists alike. Despite coming from different backgroundsand at different points in time, we are able to trace a common thread in thedesire to use form, shape, colour and line to reflect identity and values, andexpress concepts and emotions of the community and the environment inwhich the artwork is a part of.
