Submission Painting

Upon a Golden Mountain

Adrian Kay Wong depicts subtle narratives in the seemingly incidental moments of the everyday, interwoven with personal stories, memories, and cultural identity. Through attentive and carefully measured compositions, his paintings hold the often coexisting dualities understated in our daily experiences, notions such as connection and isolation, belonging and solitude, love and loss, in a still silence. There, under the veneer of light casts, rich shadows, and vibrant yet nuanced palettes, Wong navigates the boundaries between abstraction and representation, artifice and reality, ethereal and visceral.

These eight paintings are part of the exhibition "Upon a Golden Mountain" currently up at Uprise Art in NYC.
