Distant Emotion - A-RES Duo Exhibition by Joy Ng & Wong Ming Hao


Distant Emotion is a two person exhibition by young figurative artists Joy Ng and Wong Ming Hao having completed their a 6-month residency programme under A-Residency. Organised by HOM Art Trans, A-Residency resumes from a 4-year hiatus with the most recent developments by Wong and Joy.

Using this opportunity to develop unique ideas and aesthetics, Joy Ng considers herself as both the artist and the subject to express the female form, emotions and thought. She explores her notion of figure painting through new approaches, developing new techniques and languages along the way. Her paintings come together as a journal of autobiographical statements and self-exploration, seeking to digest the emotions that surface when responding to stories from around her.

Wong Ming Hao furthers his exploration to demystify the structures and conventions surrounding figurative painting. Further developing a new approach of painting technique using paint-skins collages on canvas, Wong builds camouflaging layers to submerge the underlying figures, masking over true emotions and faces of his subjects. As through peering through a kaleidoscope of history, this approach allows for tiny glimpses through the cracks to hint at the chaos in identity, documenting the beginnings of an internal battle.

Distant Emotion looks within to celebrate the power of emotion through the human figure. It records an insightful journey of pursuit and change as these young artists continues to challenge their artistic boundaries and consider new ways of expression.
