The Artling is pleased to announce the launch of 'Small Things: THE FALL COLLECTION' by Singaporean contemporary artist Dawn Ng. The Fall Collection marks the second season of 'Small Things', a series of a family of paper vessels that have been uniquely handmade in a soft kaleidoscope of shades. 'Small Things' embodies the artist's first foray into the realm of design and is one that demonstrates Dawn's keen sense of materiality and attention to the rawness and irregularity of the handmade object. The Fall Collection ushers in an array of autumnal pigments of blues, taupes, plum, and forest.
The Fall Collection is now available exclusively for purchase on The Artling here!
Much of Dawn’s practice revolves around time - the holding on to or suspension of certain moments within time. The Singaporean artist sees these vessels as minutes and hours kneaded and compressed into organic shapes and shades. They also speak of her ongoing interest in the ephemeral across elements of form and colour. The realm of design is one that Dawn endeavours to continue to explore given her curiosity and passion she has for material experimentation, which is intertwined in her practice.
First released as a Spring Collection of sixteen elegant vessels, 'Small Things' stands as modern-day relics of our fragile times. Each vessel is unique and bears hundreds of the artist's fingerprints. They cradle a desire to hold something soft yet concrete in one's palms and speak of our intrinsic capacity to make something beautiful out of whatever we have.
