Registration of Interest in REplay: Art Workshop by Dr Ho Chee Lick
Workshop date: January 20, 2018 (Sat)
Time: 10AM to 10PM
Venue: Studio 3
(Maximum number of participants: 20)The full-day workshop will investigate (read: play with) the creative processes, approaches and techniques of art making. The workshop aims to rediscover play by posing questions such as: How does a painter borrow creative practices from music? How do we create through play? Why do we even ask how to play? Participants will play with different mediums and materials in this hands-on creative workshop.

Born in Singapore in 1950, Dr Ho Chee Lick (何自力)was a student of Chinese High School in the 1960s — where he was taught by Chen Wen Hsi and Chen Chong Swee in both Western and Chinese arts. Later in the 1980s, he studied in the US and obtained a PhD degree in linguistics from Kansas University. Since 1990 he has been teaching in the National University of Singapore, first in the Department of English Language and Literature, then in the Department of Chinese Studies.

From an early age Dr Ho has been deeply involved with music and painting. Many of Dr. Ho’s paintings have captured both the interior emotional landscapes of Singaporeans and the exterior landscapes of Singaporean life. His style can be characterised by the duality that lies in his technique – fluid or angular – as well as the tension that distinguishes the control of urgency-infused brushwork, and the poignant temporality of the subject matter.

His works may be found in the collection of the National Art Gallery, Art Retreat (private museum), NUS Museum, NTU Museum, and The Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
