Encapsulation

By Brendan Neiland


Material : Acrylic on canvas

Location : Capital Tower

Duration : Permanent

Collection : CapitaLand Limited

Dimensions : 1.5m x 2.1m


This piece is one of 12 photo-realist paintings commissioned by CapitaLand for Capital Tower before its completion. Artist Brendan Neiland had visited the building while it was under construction. He drew inspiration from it and its surroundings for painting the part-elevations of the skyscrapers in this part of downtown Singapore and of Capital Tower itself. The elevations – in stone, glass and steel – are predominately geometrical, with the occasional palm trees giving relief to their regularity. What the artist wants to do is to bring the built forms and light, which are outside Capital Tower, into the building.
