BACCALÀ has conducted its first Artist in Residency with artist Charlotte Ager.
Ager completed a two-week residency in Bintan, Indonesia and created a body of work influenced by her surroundings. Bintan island is part of Indonesia’s Riau Archipelago, just across the strait from Singapore. Ager’s work recognizes landscape, architecture, and humanity all with vivid use of color and form and this is why we chose her to be wholly inspired by the residency’s locale.
“My personal experience for the residency was magical; being able to create in an environment that was so beautiful and so welcoming was amazing. It was such a unique experience to be free to explore and respond to a place so immediately without any constraints. The color and forms of the landscape were inspiring and I had endless ideas. It was impossible to stop drawing.
Throughout my stay, the environment was constantly changing as it was affected so much by the light, temperature, and weather. It was wonderful to try and capture. The arch of the days always presented something new; I loved the cooler, quieter mornings against blazing hot afternoons to wonderful pink sunsets. It was a real pleasure to capture this place that’s so special and idyllic” – Charlotte Ager, 2018.
