Han Sai Por Biography

One of Singapore’s pivotal modern art sculptors, Han has received critical attention for the rigour of her practice over the years. Nature has been her principal source, providing motifs and metaphors of forests, plants, seeds and fruit that signify the vitality of life. Her sculptures are characterised by organic forms and understated elegance, often demonstrating a strong sense of symmetry and balance as well as intuitive understanding of material. While stone has been the material she is most associated with, Han has worked successfully with glass, metals, paper and ice, and her practice also extends to paintings and drawings.
