We are thrilled to welcome New York-based artist Lily Wong for her very first solo exhibition in France, and at the gallery. She will present a new body of works on paper, as well as a lithograph made at IDEM in Paris.
Lily Wong (1989, lives and works in Brooklyn) graduated in Printmaking at Rhode Island School of Design, Providence, in 2011, and Painting at CUNY Hunter College, New York, in 2020. She fuses witty references to contemporary life with classical East Asian imagery. The figures which occupy Wong’s work have exaggerated features and illicit emotions that consume much of modern life: anxiety, fear, love, and loss. With a background in printmaking, Wong has an electric ability to enliven a composition with color and narrative.
