An artwork, like a person, can evolve and develop its character or personality. It is a long developmental process that goes beyond the colours of paint on a canvas. More than the material that creates its form, each piece also contains many layers of thought and preparation. Like many things in our lives, our eyes see only the finished product, but not the painstaking process that it goes through before its completion, involving sources of inspiration, sketches and preliminary studies, working and experimenting with materials and development of the final work.

Anticipations and Realizations were conceived as a series of exhibitions in two parts to allow audiences a rare ‘backstage’ look in the creation and conception of an artwork. The first part Anticipations was held on the 27th of February 2003, at Utterly Art Exhibition Space for five days and displayed the drawings and initial sketches and ideas of six local and resident artists to give insight into the creative artistic process. Now eight months later, Realizations exhibits the finished work of Geraldine Schubert, Sarbani Bhattacharya, Paul Chay, Ann Healey, Koh Tien Gui and Lara Pang alongside some of their preliminary ideas, and it is hoped that members of the public will be able to appreciate the long hard road from conception of an artwork to its fruition.
