Wong’s work has been shown in the RMIT:ART:INTERSECT LIGHTSCAPES in 2016, the Asia Contemporary Art Show in Hong Kong (2016), and at Fraser Gallery in Auckland, New Zealand.
Wong Cheuk Ying’s photographic practice is inspired by her interests in architecture, particularly architectural forms that are uncanny. Her current work focuses on uncanny architecture to highlight the changes in a metropolis. The work focuses on the forms, structures and shapes of buildings, which are then transformed through digital processing. They aim to show the sublime nature of the abstracted spaces of uncanny architecture.
Pat Chong Kwan Ting was born in 1987 and is a Hong Kong based artist, a Master Fine Art candidate at the Hong Kong Arts School and Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology University. Pat’s works are related to her memories and realism, capturing timeless moments of perfect quietness. Her current work is centred on figurative ceramics works that are based on her childhood, love affairs, and paradoxical relationship with strangers.
