Alex Face FRAGILE exhibition at Art Porters Gallery in Singapore on July 2 – September 9, 2020
The beauty I see in flowers, may be because of its fragility. When I trim and thread a garland, I do it delicately, being careful not to bruise the petals, not to bend or break the stems. While handling these flower petals, I come to realize its fragile beauty, my touch becomes gentler. More cautious and aware, I sense its delicate beauty. We may also feel this way when cradling a baby, holding something tiny, this fragile thing in our hands, supporting it with the strength of every muscle, with an embrace as light as cotton. We keep doing this, until we realize that both beauty and youth are short lived. From then we relax our muscles, we just hold it and sway along with the rhythm of the song. – Alex Face
