A selection of marvelous figurative paintings by Lily Wong, a Brooklyn, New York-based artist specializing in capturing the essence of traditional Chinese culture in a contemporary and peculiar way.
In her latest body of work, Wong reflects on seeking ancestral and spiritual connectivity through a culturally fractured lens. This series of paintings stems from Wong’s experience of reconnecting with Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). Her allegorical paintings reference body meridian charts, physical pressure points and bodily imbalances. The works present figures who inhabit various states of navigation or disorientation.Juxtapoz
