Karin Weber Gallery artist Carmen Ng is a Hong-Kong based contemporary watercolorist and ink painter who renders her complex, city-inspired dreams in vivid and delightful detail on paper.
Carmen Ng captures a world that can only be imagined in dreams. The artist’s meticulously rendered scenes reveal the minutia of her subjects’ other worldly existences- no detail or cleverly imagined situation is too small to be rendered in exacting detail. This is all the more appreciated when the audience takes note that these highly controlled studies, which are rendered in watercolor.
Born in Hong Kong, a truly unique city of high density and certain idiosyncrasy, the viewer might wonder if such imaginative subject matter could be rendered elsewhere. A genuine Hong Kong original, Ng’s works are thoughtful devices full of humor, simple truths and imaginative displays of our collective humanity.
