Methodology:Layer is a vital component in my art making process. Through layers, I create a depth that suggests the intricate nature of the cityscape. I also selectively identify geometric shapes and forms from photographs of the cityscape, and later which I applied them into my artworks. Even the colours will be selectively considered. Processed colours will be primarily used to signify the city as a crucial thriving spot that comprises the core of Singapore's financial activities. Monochromatic tones will also be used, though sparingly, to retain its nature of a concrete infrastructure.
