Wendy was born in Hong Kong, Educated in the United States, Belgium and the United Kingdom. Art has always been at the heart of all Wendy’s career decisions. Trained in Art and Design at The Wimbledon School of Art, UK, with a Graphic Design and Illustration background in advertising and publishing.
Searching within this, she finds natural patterns that can become the basis of more developed decorative elements. The subtle colour harmonies combined with overlapping patterns and silhouettes, create contrasts; balanced between the abstract and the illusion.
Within the complexity of pattern, the hidden is revealed. By contrasting hard and soft shapes and tones, Wendy’s work has a fascinating diversity of female forms, and the endless variety of ways to portray them.
Wendy Ng’s work presents itself in an enclosed space of aesthetic form and complex structure. It can be described as, dismantled and transformed evanescent beauty, that is sensual and organic.
The Illusive series of female figures that gaze out from the canvas, are laden with mystery and multiple perspectives that imply the illusionary haze of overlapping memories. A composition is being orchestrated; organic and geometric beauty is revealed before the viewer, and the past retreats as the present becomes fluid.
The artist’s technique is conflicting; combining realism with an abstract vision, the works can be likened to that of Juan Gris; whose objects were broken up, analysed and re-assembled in an abstracted form.
"My commercial experience has given me a broad scope of artistic expression. Painting in the traditional form gives me the opportunity to take my ideas further; experimenting with the juxtaposition of patterns and textures, to achieve a play of balance and to create rich and inviting paintings. I am inspired by Gustav Klimt and Tamara de Lempicka’s art."
