The Hands That Remember at Fost Gallery

Ottie and I went to the opening of The Hands That Remember by Izziyana Suhami at Fost Gallery in Gillman Barracks last Friday. I shared an oil painting class with Izzi before, so I’ve sort of been keeping track of her art career like the creeper that I am, eh heh. This solo exhibition represents her foray into the abstraction of embroidery and weaving, and even features a small activity corner for patrons to try a little weaving. Do check it out! It runs till 31 May.

My contribution is that small navy patch on the bottom left corner. I didn’t know what I doing, so I weaved with a double thread; I had to request for a pair of scissors from the counter to free the needle after. D’oh! It was pretty meditative while I worked on it though.

I had a bit of time before heading for the opening, so I decided to experiment with eyeshadow. My makeup game is still very much a work-in-progress, but hey, you’re looking at someone who used to apply lipstick on her eyes just for fun.

I was lucky to receive an Airism top from Uniqlo during their promotion early this month! I chose the men’s v-neck short sleeve top, just because. It’s no big deal, sometimes I prefer menswear styles over the clothes prescribed to my gender. That’s just so restrictive. The special Airism material has such a unique smooth feel to it! I really like how it keeps me perfectly cool and dry for the perpetual summer of Singapore.

    I love her artwork it’s so beautiful. I wanted to take a weaving class while I was in school but wasn’t able to before I graduated :((( I bet it is sort of meditative work.

    Haha, I like your eye makeup experimentation; I’m totally like, not a makeup person at all, but I should experiment with things one day. Also here, here for mens tees. I love them. I also love Uniqlo. We are getting a Uniqlo here in Chicago this Fall and I cannot wait! I like this look and the way the belt ties it all together, haha. Thanks for sharing.

      IKR right? Aaah, that’s too bad! But at least with the internet, it’s a lot easier to take up new craft…? I think Izzi learnt it on her own, our school didn’t offer weaving. :(

      Thank you Maria! I really only started getting serious about makeup last year, so things are still shiny. And yay!! I hope the Uniqlo in Chicago is everything you hoped for and more! Especially since you experience colder weather there, I think their selection of winter wear will come in really useful- I heard that they’re good! Thank you once again for your thoughtful comment, Maria! :)
