Annysa Ng: Eyes Closed

29 Apr - 4 Jun 2011

“Eyes Closed” presents Hong Kong-born, New York-based artist Annysa Ng’s pen and ink painting works created between 2007 to now for the first time in Hong Kong. Ng explores topics of identity and reality as perceived through various states of consciousness in her works. Her iconic featureless faces of the figures are specifically tied to the identity and the history of Hong Kong. Combining period European fashion with traditional Chinese costume, her works do not merely illustrate the coexistence of Eastern and Western cultures in Hong Kong; they also emphasize the paradox of its void identity.
