Adrian Kay Wong



Los Angeles based artist Adrian Kay Wong observes the intimate and familiar by depicting daily life in isolated, encapsulated moments. Composed with a deliberate and measured simplicity, his paintings preserve a stillness that feels cohesive, sentimental, and familiar.

Wong often employs a visual alliteration that manifests itself in the basic construction of his shapes, use of repeated forms, and reoccurring motifs. By segmenting his surfaces into forms that are collectively representational, but independently functioning as abstract shapes, these modular elements explore interactions between primary subject and contextual elements. Wong's puzzle-like arrangements are intensified by a flatness that subverts the usual perception of depth and visual heirarchy.

The paintings are distinctive in a sensitivity to the quieter, more mundane, and ordinary settings of the everyday. Wong attempts to discover and glorify the sentimentalities in these scenes often overlooked – the sedentary, the subtle, the unnoticed.
