Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

In this new series “Every Colour is Blessed”, it is composed of thousands of folded paint shirts with a huge diversity of colours. Ng began this series through the contemplative process of his practice; he questions about colour preferences. He asked “Since when I don’t wear pink clothes?” This question leads to, from personally to globally, discovery of the complexity and contradictions of social inclusiveness. It involves issues of cultural discrimination, social injustice and prejudices from the long past to the present.

Folded paint shirt symbolises different cultures, set of mental values, backgrounds, ways of living, as well as philosophies and beliefs. Ng binds those shirts together with his best wishes and blessings with a written ancient Chinese symbol from the eight trigrams, dui which means happiness. The works are abstract and figurative at once, and intriguing with profound implications. As he said, “Everything between light and shadow will sublime; so will those wishes and blessings.”

Artist Profile

Born: 1971

Hometown: Hong Kong

Based in: Hong Kong

1971 Born in Hong Kong

Ng Lung-Wai graduated with a master degree in architecture from The Chinese University of Hong Kong. For more than 13 years, he worked as an art director and had collaborated with local museums, exhibition centers and governmental departments for a wide range of exhibition projects. These organizations include Hong Kong Museum of Art, Hong Kong Heritage Museum, Hong Kong Museum of Coastal Defense, Hong Kong Planning and Infrastructure Exhibition Gallery, Hong Kong Film Archive and The Heritage of Mei Ho House, Home Affairs Department, Architectural Services Department, Planning Department, and other governmental Units.

Through the years of experience in a spectrum of exhibitions for museums, and the aesthetics and values he absorbed from architecture, Ng had developed diverse approaches and his unique style in art.

Ng approaches the discipline of painting with a twist, using unconventional elements such as oil scribbles, pyrography and a mix of modern and vintage materials as well as the incorporation of up-cycled antiques. In his recent series of works, All the Best, he pioneered to make paintings by folding acrylic paint; he folded his feelings and blessings into the works.

Ng has received numerous accolades on multi-disciplinary creative practice and design contests both internationally and locally.
