What would you do if you were given a second chance? In the case of Pupuk Daru Purnomo, he looked at his paintings from a different point of view, mindset, and awareness, and recreated them by incorporating different technique and colours. This second chance was brought to him through smartphone technology.
.
Pupuk Daru Purnomo is a painter well-known for his very expressive brushstrokes. Like many of his contemporaries, he would photograph each completed work with his smartphone. However, it was through a photo-editing app that he was able to see his paintings in a different light and discovered a new window of possibilities to re-execute them.
.
In this exhibition, Pupuk will present 6 pairs of his abstract paintings, each comprises the first attempt and the recreated piece.

About Gallery
Mizuma Gallery was established in 1994 in Tokyo, and since its opening in Gillman Barracks, Singapore in 2012, it aims for the promotion of Japanese artists in the region as well as the introduction of new and promising young talents from Southeast Asia to the international art scene. The gallery creates a new vector of dialogue within Asia, by exchanging art projects between East Asia and Southeast Asia.
.
Set in a former military barracks dating back to 1936 and surrounded by lush tropical greenery, the Gillman Barracks visual arts cluster was launched in September 2012. Gillman Barracks’ vision is to be Asia’s destination for the presentation and discussion of international and Southeast Asian art. Today, Gillman Barracks is a place for art lovers, art collectors, and those curious about art. The cluster is a focal point of Singapore’s arts landscape, and anchors the development of visual art in the region and beyond. For more information: www.gillmanbarracks.com
