The journey of being an artist, or nurturing any art form, parallels the process of a plant anchoring strongly in soil, growing tall and weathering elements overtime.
DECK, launched with the dream of pushing local and regional photography to new heights, requires that conditions to germinate and blossom. The team behind this brainchild understands that every stroke of genius trickles down from years of uncompromising hard work and a firm foundation, be it in technical mastery, artistic experience or aptitude – qualities mirrored in the artworks featured in this showcase. Most importantly, like art making, this is an endeavour that could not just be achieved in isolation. We need you, the catalyst of change, to weight in.
These works are generous donations by some of the most promising and well known photographers of our time, and all proceeds would go into laying the infrastructural groundwork for DECK.
Together, let’s break new ground in Singapore’s arts and cultural landscape.
Made of 19 refurbished shipping containers, DECK is a unique space of galleries, artist studio and library. Moving into 2015, we will launch a brand new series of programmes and a community art library. Ongoing is our fundraising exhibition GROUNDWORK which 20 artists donated their works to support DECK’s core programmes for artists in 2015.
