Landscape of an Artist’s Being

Were they streams of thoughts or a series of dreamscapes?

Today I visited an exhibition of artist/poet Johanna Ng’s work at Kinokuniya bookstore’s Wedge Gallery.  Like rushing streams, like craggy mountains, like floating lilies, and like so many familiar motifs impossible to catch and pin down,  these are an artist’s subconscious brush strokes that express what we Chinese say,  只可意會,不可言傳,things that can only be perceived but cannot be conveyed in so many words.

Tune in to the images and perhaps you will know the artist, or something of yourself.




The exhibition is on in Sydney until next Tuesday 2 August, 2016.

    The wonderful thing about art is that everyone brings a self to it and that changes the art.
