Master of Fine Art
LASALLE College of the Arts
Susie Wong began her arts practice in the late 1980s, in painting and art writing, complementing these with art education, teaching, and curatorial projects. She has exhibited works in figurative paintings, portraits, landscapes, drawings, and installations. Central to her works then was the inquiry of the image/light as a medium that mediates between memory and loss, between documentation and nostalgia. Her works Trace, which was exhibited at The Substation in 2008, travelled to Valentine Willie FA Gallery, KL; My Beautiful Indies, and After Image, were shown respectively at The Esplanade at the end of 2013, and at Space Cottonseed, Gillman Barracks in 2014. Her work now contemplates mass media and the circulation of images and its voracious consumption, appropriating images or visual references for much of her work. In 2018, a video/projection installation Take Care of Me was part of the curated series Opening Day at Upper Serangoon Shopping Centre. She was artist-in-residence at the NTU-CCA (Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore) from June to November 2018.
