A Pretty Peranakan Tale, 2015

Joyce Tan

Oil on Canvas, 18"W × 18"H × 1"D


A Peranakan Tale by jtmuses Perhaps, the most significant Peranakan motifs are the exquisite peony and celestial phoenix. In this original oil painting of a nyonya, I depicted her thoughts on love and marriage. In its tightly clenched petals, her peonies hide her fertile musings. In it, arises a phoenix, a cosmic creature often seen on pillow ends and wedding cups…sanctifying eternal and harmonious love between a man and a woman. Follow her romantic trail. You may be surprised as you see “more” in my creation.
