Flesh on Loop: Wong Keen’s Solo Exhibition

Featuring 15 stunning works from New York-trained artist Wong Keen’s latest series of collage-paintings, Flesh on Loop is an extension of the artist’s provocative discourse on man’s ubiquitous consumption of flesh. For instance, man’s endless loop of desiring and gratification drives the commodification of flesh in the form of meat industry and prostitution, perpetuating a cyclical system of violence and complicity.

Working in a unique collage mode that fluidly integrates Chinese ink-wash with western painting techniques, the artist injects sardonic humour into his luscious, alluring imagery of the burger by reflecting human flesh as synonymous with raw or cooked animal meat sandwiched between burger buns, underlining the unsavoury reality beneath beguilingly enchanting human pleasures.
