New World Rising: This is Kenny’s second series of prints since “Under the Influence of Little Boy and Fat Man”. The connection and style carries on themes from his previous work — the mutation of Singapore’s buildings with Japanese influences. However, this time Kenny explores the topic of religion in Singapore, using the symbolism of the religious buildings scattered throughout the country. Being a multi-racial society, we are exposed to many different religions in Singapore. Has this exposure blurred the lines between Monotheistic religions? Have some of us inadvertently become Polytheists?
