Harry Wong Opening preview
Harry Wong Opening preview: Tuesday 15 October 5.30pm
The emotion of beauty is always obscured by the appearance of the object. Therefore the object must be eliminated from the picture.
We are delighted to present a new body of work by Harry Wong. Harry Wong has long been fascinated by both Pop and Op Traditions.
In his new exhibition, Wong continues his experimentation with colour utilising the graphic and optical potency of his chosen medium, Perspex.
There are three distinct directions that Wong has chosen to explore in his new series. The first focuses on a liner graphic and grid-like based style, a lineage from Mondrian. The second is a revisiting and amalgamating his 'Coastal Rhythms' (2012) work, where the picture plane is broken down to a dynamic line of sea, sky and land. The third style emerging is the marriage of these two seemingly disparate styles, fractured colour and lyrical line to produce 'Carnival'.
In this series, 'New Works', Wong works
on many ideas at once and combines them in his geometric
abstract style. He explores using a new palette, yet these
are some of the most ancient colours known to man - earthy
Wong demonstrates his ongoing inclination towards colour and shape of an organic origin.
