Poetic Hearts, Lingering Shadows (Shi Xin Qian Ying) marks the first collaboration between painter Zheng Lin Lin and poet Cheng Jun on a book that features a collection of their ink paintings and poems. The realism captured by Zheng’s works of 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 with a fresh perspective. 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, in conjunction with the Singapore Bicentennial. The exhibition of their works is now on at the Singapore Chinese Cultural Centre till 5 May 2019.
