Exhibition Preview | “Beyond Color” Shirley Wong Solo Exhibition

April 9 June 20

Introduction

The SE Gallery will be honoured to launch the solo exhibition “Beyond Color” by artist Shirley Wong from April 9 to June 10, 2022, which will focus on the series of works created by the artist in recent years.

Shirley learned from Zheng Kai, a famous Chinese-American artist, and Mr Zheng is also the enlightenment of modern Chinese design. Shirley has travelled in Europe, Africa and other places for a long time, and the things she met during the trip about nature, music, life and love give her inexhaustible inspiration. In the “Journey” series, we can feel that they contain diverse regional customs and positive emotional accumulation. The bright colors, gorgeous pictures and strong artistic expression in the works make everyone who approaches or appreciates her works feel endless joy. “Life of line”, This series of works she created under the epidemic makes people forget the pain and depression of reality, bringing people a kind of spiritual comfort and expectations for the future.

Influenced by abstract expressionist paintings, the soft colors in the work are stacked together, and the pictures are light and slightly glowing. They are either light or deep, casual and accidentally sprinkled through different color blocks and lines in the work, like a free idea floating over the canvas.

Mr Zheng Kai, Shirley’s art tutor, once commented on her paintings: “Shirley is good at composing music with painting, using points, lines, surfaces, rhythms, density and contrast to describe the variations, tone and alignment of music, and composes wonderful paintings… Wonderful!”
