Su-en Wong

Works by Su-en Wong. "...Wong's paintings depict her own personal Shangri-La: a tropical fairy-tale in which nude images of herself happily cavort hand-in-hand. Amongst exotic plants and lagoons, the young women picnic and sunbathe alongside frogs and snakes. Evoking the colors of the tropics, the theme is further reflected in the titles, 'Eve Green,' 'Return to Paradise,' and 'Fairy Tale Blue.' Wong's work interprets 'a very private and personal haven' in which her real self co-mingles with her fantasy other. Her paintings also explore the duality between the 'frivolity of adolescence' and the adult bittersweet longing for such simple pleasures."
