Kylin Gallery is thrilled to announce our representation of artist Diana Shui-Iu Wong and will present Wong’s solo exhibition: CONTEMPLATION from June 1 to August 24, 2020. The online exhibition will be available concurrently with the physical show. The 13 works to be included in the exhibition include painting, sculpture, and installation, all selected from Wong’s three main series created from 1983 to 2020. Each series reflects the artist’s understanding of art at the time, the deep exploration of self, and her perception of changes in the world.In the early 1980s, Wong moved to Los Angeles, which was hailed as an "art desert". From 1981 to 1986 she created oil paintings in the series “Pacifica,” reflecting her artistic trajectory of her first years in California. Wong's works in the late 1990s were mostly influenced by Eastern philosophy, engaging the vastness of the sky and outer space, conforming to the laws nature, “action through inaction” - a core of Lao Zi’s ideology and the concept of “Tao.”According to Wong, "My recent work is about the endless universe, imagining leaping, vivid colors and halos like the rolling sea. The planet in it’s celestial orbit, impacted by falling meteors, creating a celestial wonder, a fusion of real and unreal. These are paintings of a flowing landscape without a focal point, activated from many different angles. This gives me extraordinary freedom and boundless joy in creating. When I roam through the tunnel of time from the past, present, and future, my work intertwines with the teachings of the I Ching, exposing profound secrets of the universe.”
