Exhibition

Happiness Private Limited 2011: Back in Season

Exhibiting Artists: William Sim

Venue: Utterly Art 229A South Bridge Road > venue details

Dates: 04 Nov 2011 - 13 Nov 2011

Back for a third year, William Sim's Happiness Private Limited 2011 sets its chimerical seeds deep in the grounds of his verdant mental landscape. The resulting crop of evergreen happiness sparkles in the dew of its sunlit hue.

Listen to boisterous hilarity from flower beds of insanely happy vegetation beneath each quiet surface of the paintings. Blithely peering from the maddening patchwork of thoughts and ideals is familiarity hiding askew in objects of commonplace lunacy. Each piece of work from the realm of Happiness Private Limited 2011 is a carefully crafted story of curiously unnatural nature. Like an oddball grocer, the Merchant of Happiness, William offers a selection of freshly cut happiness, the fruits of which are ardently calibrated and injected with heightened fervency following each harvest.

Artist

  • William Sim

    Singapore

    William started painting under the guidance of pioneer artist Tan Puay Tee at the age of 10. Through his mentorship, William studied colour and form. Over the years he has experimented with various media, but nature as a thematic study has never left his canvas. The worlds William creates find their roots in happiness. The subjects of his paintings are a blend of nature and mechanical objects: they depict, singly and as collectives, dreamscapes where positivity reigns.
