Wong Lam Yi’s painting practice focuses on the juxtaposition of organic and geometric, rigidity and liquidity, controllable and uncontrollable. Various visual languages communicate simultaneously in a painting, constructing a spatial composition with forms and colours. Her way of abstraction starts with feelings about relationships and connections. With her feelings and memories in a relationship, forms and colours intuitively paint themselves, transforming the unseen feelings into visible images.

Forms, colours and textures are the fundamental components of my painting language. Various visual elements are like different personalities; some are congenial while some are contradictory; In all, they are connected.
