Last year, big brother Renn had his solo exhibition – Renn Lim by Renn Lim. This year his little sister, Aira joins him and together they let music inspire them and their creations for bLAh bLAh bLAh.
In the midst of a crazy work week and after a little detour, do not confuse Tanjong Katong with Tanjong Pagar, I made it in time for their opening night!!
Part of the charm of the night was the kids. Anyone who knows me, knows I’m a sucker for little people. When you put a bunch of them in one space and I’m a happy camper 🙂
The littlest of them all was dear Lucy who gave me a big wave when I first saw her on the way to the bathroom. She was inspired enough to do a little drawing herself. Potted around and climbed up next to Shell all on her own. She even had, what I suspect is a first date 😉
If your mothers are standing by and watching, is it still considered a first date?
Even with the kids around, I managed to find my favourite pieces for the night. I’m amazed how much Renn has grown as an artist.
You can see the improvement on his skills and the maturity of his vision. He may not eventually choose to be an artist as a career but he’ll always be an artist in his heart. Sure, he’s a kid and for now, given a choice will choose the iPad over his brushes but when you see the world like he does, whether it’s a wacom stylus, a traditional paint brush or just imagination, it’s a little more fun to navigate 🙂
His 6 year old sister impressed me too!! We always knew she had a flair for the dramatics and may possibly be a pop icon in her own time but now we know she can control a pencil and yields it to no one.
I had such a blast that I brought my munchkins back on another night.
I love that I can bring them to an art gallery where they get to see their friends, hang out and get to learn about art too. I think they were all mostly having fun playing in an art gallery, which doesn’t always happen for them :p While the big ones hung out and chased each other around. Little Rach was inspired and chose to keep herself busy being an artist herself.
One of Aira’s classmate came by while we were there too and guess what? Lo and behold, she shares the same birthday as Aira and Mabes!!
They are no means the same but have a similar energy and a penchant for dramatics 🙂 You just might be looking at the first picture of Singapore’s girl group hit!! We can call them July 17 :p Ok ok ok, as a bias aunt I can get carried away. They all had so much fun hanging out that my munchkins asked when were the next time we’ll be seeing R+A again 🙂
I live for moments like these.
Well done R+A!! Your diligence and talents to make bLAh bLAh bLAh possible are rare and inspire me to get my own film done. Thank you both so much and congratulations on a wonderful exhibition!!
