Amy Wong's paintings and drawings are a collection of diverse cultural references. A broad range of source material is absorbed and used as personal narrative. She is interested in the power of images, and in the possibility of transcending clichés by painting the symbols that propel them.
Wong (b. 1981, Toronto) has lived and worked in Canada, the US, the Netherlands, Spain, and China. She completed her BFA at Concordia University in Montréal, Quebec, and post-graduate studies at De Ateliers in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. She has shown at the Seoul Museum of Art, the Chinese European Art Center in Xiamen, and the Gemente museum in the Hague. Wong is the recipient of grants from the Toronto Arts Council, Ontario Arts Council, and Canada Council for the Arts.
