The first gallery we went to at Gillman Barracks was the Sundaram Tagore Singapore Gallery. It has a rather expansive collection of prints from renowned photographers, and we were suitably impressed by the Annie Leibovitz, McCurry, and Henri Cartier-Bresson prints.
But that afternoon, what blew us away were the three waterfall paintings by Hiroshi Senju in an adjoining room. Standing in that room and looking up at those paintings, we were in awe and humbled in their presence. They are so beautiful.
(Pictures don’t do justice)
I just found out from the site that the paintings are part of a new show Inside Out at the gallery, so I reckon that what we saw that day wasn’t the final installation. The exhibition runs from 23 November – 31 December at the Sundaram Tagore Singapore Gallery at Gillman Barracks.
And if you’re in Japan, there is a Hiroshi Senju museum in Karuizawa.
