Mama on Palette x Peace of Art Eco Art Exhibition @ The Centrepoint - Where Art Meets Sustainability (March 18 - April 14)



In an unprecedented fusion of art and environmental advocacy, the Eco Art Exhibition, presented by Mama on Palette and Peace of Art and supported by The Centrepoint, proudly opens its doors from March 18 to April 14 at the Atrium of the mall. This landmark event not only showcases the transformative power of art but also ignites a vital conversation on sustainability and conservation through the lenses of renowned artists from both communities.


Artworks on Display: A Testament to Eco-consciousness


Agatha ‘Agy’ Lee – A textile artist with a profound respect for the natural world, Agy’s contributions include several thought-provoking pieces. "Relics" (2023), with its embroidered remnant organza crafted into coral specimens, confronts viewers with a future where coral reefs might only be seen as historical artefacts. "Bowls of Fragility" (2021) explores our destructive relationship with coral reefs, highlighting the urgency of changing our consumption habits. "Abundant Bloom" (2022) offers a glimmer of hope with its representation of climate-resilient corals, while "Fragile Beauty" (2023) depicts the vulnerability of coral reefs under anthropogenic pressures, emphasizing the need for immediate action to preserve these precious ecosystems.


Biek Speijk – Champion of the slow fashion movement, Biek's textile paintings weave personal stories with themes of sustainability. From "Jut," which celebrates the lasting value of custom-tailored shirts, to "Chino," highlighting the joy of mindful consumerism. "Bianca" (2007-2023) traces Biek's journey from fashion designer to motherhood, symbolizing the passage of time through antique children's clothing. "G Star Raw'' reflects on a significant career milestone with a sustainable denim line, emphasizing collaboration in achieving fashion sustainability.




Integrating Art and Advocacy: Peace of Art’s Impactful Works


Showcased alongside Mama on Palette's artists are works by Peace of Art, enriching the exhibition with diverse perspectives on environmentalism.


Peace of Art Founder, Eunice Yeo's "Whispers of the Deep" (2024) is a striking sculpture that marries beauty with a message of conservation, featuring a life-sized bust that reflects the human impact on coral reefs, adorned to spark contemplation on our environmental responsibilities.


Chua Zin Yan presents "Collage No. 22" and "Collage No. 24" (2024), where ordinary objects are transformed into layered collages that question consumerism and promote sustainable living. These pieces invite viewers to find joy and connection in reimagined scraps, highlighting the importance of reevaluating our consumption habits.
