Moongates

So pleased to be able to say that there is a new addition to my public works — this is Moongate, installed at Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay. The Moongate has been in my blood ever since my youthful sojourn in Penang when I saw it in the botanical gardens. I have worked and reworked the idea over many years. Why?

It speaks to me of journeys, circles of thought, cycles of life, thresholds to cross … a simple form that belies the complexities conjured.

Well, here are pictures of some versions of mine, including the Moongate at the Gardens by the Bay that was just installed.

From cold to hot

After the excitement of the Cultural Medallion award and all its attendant attention that Fahcheong received, he came back to Canada to the winter.

Being no bear, he did not, could not hibernate. Instead, it was a little quality time to enjoy being with the family over the holiday period. and some winter activities like snowshoeing, x-country skiing, and yes, even shovelling away the snow from the driveway.

But now, he’s gone from cold to hot — he’s in Thailand, beginning work on another exciting project. Here’s a sneak peek:

Cultural Medallion

So honoured to be awarded the Cultural Medallion for visual arts for 2014. Grinned from ear to ear, shook the hands of many, received congratulations galore, “chatted” with Mr. President and his wife, flashbulbs popped (do they today?) in my face, interviewed by multi media, saw my larger-than-life face on a billboard … THANK YOU, everyone, for your support.
