Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

The air in Beijing is very dry, whether it is spring, summer, autumn or winter. Put a bunch of grapes without cover on the table, soon they will have turned into raisins.
Besides the dry air, the wind that blows through Beijing is harsh, rough, and sharp like a knife. Walking against the wind, it will pierce through your body, much like it would feel having your skin being peeled away by sandpaper.
I commute daily to and forth between my studio and home. After Heiqiao was demolished, I moved my studio further north of the city outside of the 6th ring road. The journey to my studio begins two bus stops south of 798 Art District, taking route G101 north, passing a few urban villages, golf courses until I am outside of the northern part of the sixth ring road. From here, I will ride another bus for another half an hour that will take me to a village called Ji Shan Ying. 10 more minutes of bicycle ride, I would be at my studio courtyard located at the south of the village.

Artist Profile

Born: 1974

Hometown: Kuala Lumpur

Based in: Beijing

Wong Perng Fey (b.1974, Kuala Lumpur) is an artist that has built his reputation as an experimental and versatile painter since his graduation from the Malaysian Institute of Art under the school's scholarship in 1998. He was awarded the Artist Residency in Rimbun Dahan, Kuang in 2002. His works are in many prominent public collections such as the National Visual Arts Gallery, Kuala Lumpur, Bank Negara Malaysia Museum Art Gallery, Kuala Lumpur and Galeri Petronas, Kuala Lumpur. He lives and works in Beijing.

Perng Fey's gestural paintings of figures, nature, and natural vistas fluctuate between abstraction and figuration with an acute sensitivity to colors, layers and textures. His body of work, consisting of a diverse subject matter, ranging from traditional landscape and portraiture to abstraction exhibits a talented and confident brush play. The canvas, becoming more than a picture plane, is transformed into a 'stage' for the documentation of actions and mistakes. It becomes a space that records gestures and mental states.
