Human being is always at the centre of Apple Wong’s practice. She is interested in exploring self-consciousness and intersubjectivity from another dimension. In Wong’s coloured drawings, the mood and emotion conveyed may evoke a deep sense of loneliness and isolation to viewers, but to the artist herself it is a quest for serenity and to contemplate her inherently social existence. Her monochromatic drawings in contrast, Wong significantly increased the number of nearly identical humans. The physical space between each human is so close, and yet the repeating similar body movements and emotionless facial expressions further amplified the vulnerability of human connections. Through drawing the same subject repetitively, Wong attempts to envision this process as therapy to overcome her anxiety toward interpersonal relationships. Wong received a Bachelor of Arts in Visual Arts from Hong Kong Baptist University. She is the recipient of The Derwent Art Prize 2016 – Young Artist Award, Fresh Trend 2014 Outstanding New Artist Award and Hong Kong Cliftons Art Prize 2011.
