Yu Ting Ong
Yu Ting’s multidisciplinary practice emerges from the language of painting. Her works explore the tensions that arise with each mark, gesture and form, seeking to resolve them through the interplay of harmony, geometry and paint. She finds a close relationship between painting, poetry and music; how the interweaving of varied elements and meaning can be carried into visual expression, resulting in the multilayered visual tapestries of her work.
