In the exhibition Powers, Raymond Wong’s work juxtaposes traditionally painted figures against abstractions inspired by comic book art. Deep black marks and bright beige tones, create a surreal powerful structural backdrop. One of Wongs favorite source material is pages of Weekly Shonen Jump, a long running manga anthology. The fashion models are often in static poses. Their emotive faces and body language tell us that they have embraced their calamitous environments. Wong’s paintings suggests a dormant insanity within, or concealed power waiting to arise.
