WONG Hiu Ching
WONG Hiu Ching, Bonny is an intuitive painter infatuated with light, especially different kinds of atmospheric lights at nighttime. Her practice focuses on atmosphere, emotion and space and she hopes viewers can connect with the feelings contained in her work. She believes people are born to seek light because people need and love light. She depicts subtle and equivocal emotions and thoughts in light because it is hard to clarify all these ineffable and ephemeral feelings in words.
'Gazing at the lights, I thought I saw emotions between them, I thought the lights were talking to me. Was it real? What were they trying to say?’

It is a story between the moon and the reflection of light on the ceiling of a minibus. In a moment, the two spaces overlap, breaking through space. The moon and the light stay together in the one-second viewpoint and this moment stays forever in the painting.
