About The Artwork

CHIJMES - watercolour on a 20 x 16 inches 300 gsm watercolour paper. A bit of history - Formerly a girls school known as the Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus Middle Education School, CHIJMES (pronounced ‘chimes’) harks back to a bygone age. CHIJMES began with one building—Caldwell House as a home for a Senior Magistrate’s clerk. The property was bought over by Father Beurel in 1853 and Singapore’s St Nicholas Girls' School was established alongside an orphanage for children and a boarding house. Other structures slowly sprung up around Caldwell House, most notably a grand Anglo-French Gothic chapel in 1904. The church you see in this painting has intricate plasterwork, wall frescoes and Belgian stained glass windows which to date inspire wonder! In the daytime, CHIJMES retains a sense of tranquillity and harmony, making it a peaceful oasis amid the bustle of the city. At night, it's exciting dining and nightlife options spring to life, with buzzing bars and restaurants. This painting shows the church in all its glory and gives a taste of the vibrant nightlife surrounding it.
