Lives and Works: Singapore

 

Han Sai Por is a leading Asian sculptor and Singapore Cultural Medallion recipient. Celebrated for her works in stone, her accolades include the Grand Prize at the Triennale-India 2005 and Outstanding Sculpture Award, China in 2006.

One of Singapore’s pivotal modern art sculptors, Han has received critical attention for the rigour of her practice over the years. Nature has been her principal source, providing motifs and metaphors of forests, plants, seeds and fruit that signify the vitality of life. Her sculptures are characterised by organic forms and understated elegance, often demonstrating a strong sense of symmetry and balance as well as intuitive understanding of material. While stone has been the material she is most associated with, Han has worked successfully with glass, metals, paper and ice, and her practice also extends to paintings and drawings.

With a foundation degree from the Nanyang Academy of Fine Art, Singapore (1968), Han later studied at East Ham College of Art (1980), Wolverhampton College of Art in the UK (1983) and Lincoln University (Landscape Architecture) in New Zealand. In the early phase of her development, she worked as an art educator before becoming a professional artist in 1997 and was founding President of the Singapore Sculpture Society in 2001.

Her works may be found in numerous public and corporate spaces in Singapore and overseas including Changi Airport and Esplanade: Theatres on the Bay in Singapore; Suzhou Park, China; Portland Sculpture Park, UK; Shodshima Centre Park, Japan; at the Kuching Waterfront development in Sarawak and Kuala Lumpur Lake Gardens. She has exhibited on distinguished platforms including the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, Japan and the National Museum of Modern Art, Korea. Her works have been exhibited and collected by corporate and museum collections including the Singapore Art Museum and NAFA Art Galleries.
