Postcards

[POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE]:

The paintings of Canadian artist Matthew Wong (b. 1984, d. 2019) invoke art historical precedents ranging from ink wash literati painting, to the pulsating brushstrokes of Chaim Soutine and Vincent Van Gogh, to the intuitive mark-making of abstract expressionism. His colorful, dappled vignettes of imaginary landscapes and half-remembered interiors vibrate with emotional valence. Wong held his first American solo exhibition at Karma in March 2018, garnering reviews in The New York Times and The New Yorker, among others. His work is in the public collections of the Dallas Museum of Art, Texas. Notable solo exhibitions include Massimo de Carlo, Hong Kong (2019); Karma, New York (2018); and the Hong Kong Visual Arts Centre (2015).
