MUSEUM HOP: NATIONAL GALLERY, SINGAPORE

museum hop, travel journals

Twinning places. Got this idea from a trending Facebook post; Pose in the same place when you don't have a photographer with you (or too shy to ask other tourists). Twinning places.

Our tour guide, Jane, explaining the history of the place. I didn't want to bombard my previous post with too much photos, so here are the rest of the details and paintings that caught my eye.  Our tour guide, Jane, explaining the history of the place.

Various collage works by Milenko Prvscki. Since I'm exploring the same medium, my eyes are easily drawn to these kind of artworks.

The writings on the wall. Found artistic wisdom withing the walls of the museum's library.

We were quite running out of time so I wasn’t able to take note of all the artist’s name. But I hope I my low-tech phone camera was able to give even just a little bit of justice to these works of art (let me know if you have tips and tricks on capturing images in low light, or how to take better shot in museums). If ever you’ll travel to Singapore someday, this place is worth visiting. Allot half of your day for this if you want to go all through the galleries and exhibits, because the place does not disappoint in its hugeness.
