Online Exhibition: Singapore Shop Houses by Susan Schmidt

With Singapore in mind we are delighted to share with you Susan Schmidt’s beautiful collection of Singapore Shop Houses.

“I discovered the nostalgia and heritage of the ‘shop house’ whilst exhibiting in Singapore. The oriental and exotic, the repetition, colour and pattern of the tiles and decorative features an instant attraction. A challenge to capture the history, weatherworn texture and residue of time applying the same painting techniques used to create my ‘beach house’ works irresistible. It’s the same story crossing borders and cultures underpinned by my concern for conservation, sustainable living and repurposing of the existing.”
