Poetic Hearts, Lingering Shadows

 

In a first collaboration, painter Zheng Lin Lin and poet Cheng Jun have come together to launch their book Poetic Hearts, Lingering Shadows (Shi Xin Qian Ying) that features a collection of their ink paintings and poetry. The realism captured by Zheng’s works of familiar local landmarks is paired with the evocative poetry by Cheng Jun. The juxtaposition of the two art forms invites the readers to look at their surroundings afresh with a poetic heart. This anthology is centred on the theme “harmony in multiculturalism”, reflecting Singapore's history and diverse cultures.

The special publication of Poetic Hearts, Lingering Shadows marks the 50th anniversary of the Singapore Book Council in 2018, while the book launch is also held in conjunction with the Singapore bicentennial. As part of the book launch, there will be an exhibition of the ink paintings and poetry at the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre from April 27 to May 5.

Make a donation to SBC and receive a copy of the book. By making a contribution of $20 to SBC, you will receive a complimentary copy of Poetic Hearts, Lingering Shadows. Please email [email protected] for more information.
