Legend & Reality (21 May – 5 June 2003). Singapore.
Group exhibition by five artists from Myanmar - Aye Ko, Chan Aye, Kyi Wynn, Nyan Lin Htet and San Minn. The collection of 50 abstract paintings captures the social conscience on canvas, with a hint of past history and legend, and an attempt to capture "every moment of the environment in their work".
Praise (5 September – 14 September 2003). Manila, Philippines.
Exhibition of sculptures and terracotta panels of Franciscan saints and scenes of Christ’s passion and resurrection, which capture the Franciscan spirit of poverty, penance and humility, by Indonesian artist, Teguh Ostenrik. The artworks were first commissioned by the Franciscan Order in Singapore, in August 2002, for their new Church of St. Mary of the Angels.
Despite varying techniques and styles, Ostenrik's work reveal a common theme of human communication, and relationship with nature and the cosmos, deftly capturing the pain and exaltation of the saints in these sculptures.
The Pioneers 4 (16 October – 5 November 2003). Singapore.
Exhibition celebrating the success of four artists who left Singapore’s shores in 1962 for New York with a burning passion to make better artists of themselves. Exhibition is the first time in forty years that the group – Choey Kwok Kay, Goh Beng Kwan, Wong Keen and Yu Tian Cheu – has come together for a show!
