This art piece depicts the artist's once lively, lavish and excessive lifestyle that has since been humbled and put into perspective by the global pandemic. He was once the king of the city, but now he is broken, torn, and stripped off all his royal indulgences. The future is uncertain and the question that remains in his mind is, "When Will I be King Again?"

5. Petrina Loh, Chef-Owner of Morsels

I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End.
~ Revelations 22:13
As I was seeking inspiration, God spoke and reminded me of this. The Beginning and The End is in one, because He is the beginning and the end. We start with Alpha the beginning, and finish with Omega. The drippings are like raining down but if you look closely you can still see the α and Ω. The middle painting, there is sun on top left and a pathway leading up to that. A constant reminder that He has things in control no matter what the situation is.

A Moment In Time

Medium: Acrylic, plaster, leaves, flowers, parchment medium on canvas
Size: 45cm x 60cm
Price: Bid from SGD3,000
Bid Code: LDA06
Embedded in the painting, are my travel momentos I’ve picked up whilst globetrotting. Look closely, you will find Japanese maple leaf foraged from the woods in Mount Tanigawa, Minakami, Gunma. Wild Globe Thistle Flower from Mongolia in 2009. Big Maple Leaves from San Francisco in the Fall 2011. In a myriad of colors, blue predominates brings me across oceans to different places. Green represents my love for nature and landscape accompanied by the dried leaves and flowers embedded. The bumpy texture is the terrain of the world across mountains. It is during this time of COVID19 where everything is halted, I reminisce these moments.

Waymaker, 2020

6. Phoebe Oviedo, Sous Chef of Open Farm Community

Size: 30cm x 40cm
Price: Bid from SGD500
Bid Code: LDA08
A state of mind. Uncertain, somehow both ominous and full of potential. Dark times often remind us of the constant: change. Though unclear, it is still an opportunity.

7. Oliver Truesdale-Jutras, Head Chef of Open Farm Community


Bogzarad by head chef Oliver Truesdale-Jultras

Medium: Clay and Glaze
Size: 27cm diameter
Price: Bid from SGD150
Bid Code: LDA10
An outward image of weight and darkness juxtaposed with its thin material, this piece was created to remind us of the fleeting nature of all things in life, both positive and negative. The fragility of a piece in an essentially everlasting medium, further underscores the ephemeral nature of even the most permanent things.

Bid Code: LDA09
There are so many things that shape our lives as human beings, even before we are born. They start shaping us from the womb of our mother: her thoughts, her feelings. Then comes Culture, Society, School, Politics, The System. Growing up we start having our own thoughts, which shape us into whom we are. Everything starts with a thought and that’s what shapes us. If thoughts had shapes, it would be you…
