Description


A complete overview of landscape painter Matthew Wong’s oeuvre, covering his short yet prolific career and focusing on his process and commitment to experimentation and connection

Self-taught artist Matthew Wong (1984–2019) painted intimate landscapes that recall Post-Impressionism, Fauvism, seventeenth-century Qing period ink painting, and contemporary artists he admired, including Philip Guston (1913–1980), Yayoi Kusama (b. 1929), Joan Mitchell (1925–1992), and Bob Thompson (1937–1966). Matthew Wong: The Realm of Appearances offers the first formal survey of Wong’s six-year painting career that began in Hong Kong and matured in Canada. It includes new scholarship with a focus on his process and commitment to conversation, experimentation, and connection. Through his unique visual language, Wong fostered dialogue between not only himself and other artists, but other artists and each other. The five essays are lavishly illustrated with approximately 70 of Wong’s paintings and include a selection of his writings.
