Singh paints some of the absurdity and tormented anguish that hides beneath her holiday makers as they attempt to forget themselves in the tranquillity of their new found pleasures. In Singh’s works, the false security suggests her subject’s futile pursuit for happiness. Annie is a work in which a figure appears to plunge into the water behind a distorted face pressed to the canvas. The unresolved figure stretched out on the undulating water appears to have been borrowed from recent culture and suggests that Singh is commenting on the current state of affairs.
