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.
It was my first time weaving! 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.
