A meditation on art and its creation, Fluxion celebrates the life and oeuvre of Kumari Nahappan, a conceptual artist known for her bold and unique paintings and sculpture. Based mainly in Singapore, Kumari's artistic practice has spanned over two decades. She is well known for her monumental public art sculptures and installations, including the giant bronze chili pepper, Pedas Pedas, at the National Museum of Singapore, the Saga at Changi Airport, the Nutmeg at ION Orchard, Singapore, You and Me at GTower, Kuala Lumpur, Pembungaan at OUE Bay-front, Singapore, and most recently Happy Tango at Changning District, Shanghai in 2011.
Fluxion is lavishly illustrated and includes full-color reproductions of both her early and later works, over 50 full-page plates of her more significant pieces, and a color catalog of her works. Fluxion introduces the reader to the full spectrum of Kumari's achievements in both painting and sculpture, in works of art that not only excite the viewer but encourage us to see the world in a whole new way.
