Relish.Sg Gallery Antiques Talk and High Tea

Every Sunday 4pm-630pm

Relish a divine spread of savoury curries, tea and home-made pudding. Our food speaks volumes as well as our art. Feast your eyes on unique and rare art from around the world. Learn about these artworks from expert, Chris Choo.

The Antiques:

Tribal Art

See extremely rare tribal art pieces from Indonesia – these tribes include the Bataks, Nias, Mentawai and Timorese. Some pieces are as old as 200 years!. Learn about these tribes, the fascinating history of the artwork, meaning of motifs and why pieces are carved a certain way. Did you know the Bataks were headhunters and many of their beautiful carvings are a tribute to their ancestors?

Antique Porcelain

See up close, beautiful Chinese pieces from the Ming to the late Qing period. Our Antiques expert will share about the different types of glazes as well as give you a bit of history about Chinese art and artwork.

Antique Bronzes

Appreciate the detail in Tibetan bronzes from early 19th Century to 20th C . These are mostly Tibetan Deities and Buddhas – yes there is more than one Buddha, and there are female Buddhas! Most of the figures are cast using the “lost wax” method making them extremely rare and beautiful.

Tankas

Get a very close-up view of beautiful traditional temple wall hangings, tankas. These detailed works of art on ancient fabric depict mandalas, which are sacred geometric motifs. Many are created by the monks from the monastery, using handmade pigments to achieve the vibrant colours that make tankas so attractive and special. Some of these colours contain real gold!

The Collector and Speaker

Chris Choo studied Russian History and Medieval History and Politics at the London School of Economics. His love for beautiful and rare art started very early and has seen him carefully sourcing pieces from across the globe, he does this for his friends, clients and has some beautiful pieces in his home. His passion gives him an eye for very special pieces and he knows every piece in great detail. From Antique art to very small and beautiful designer jewelry and crystals, Chris is a collector who seeks the art he loves as much as they seek him and find themselves in his possession.
