Han Sai Por: Harvest
Like one who sows and nurtures seeds with love and care, Han has pursued her art-making with perseverance and dedication.
Han’s signature stone sculptures always exude an intense, quiet determination beneath the solidity of the material; a sense of undying love for and obligation to the natural environment is apparent and the hard rocks are softened by their forms through her delicate hands. Her work has always centred on man’s rapid destruction of the natural, native environments in harsh, urban landscapes.
Approached to work with Esplanade once again for the occasion of Singapore’s jubilee year, Han has adopted a lighter and more celebratory note, gathering a fruitful Harvest to mark Singapore’s golden 50th anniversary and the new beginning of the next 50 years to come.
