Diary in South Africa

Graduated from China Central Academy of Fine Arts, Chinese contemporary artist Kristine Ng-Young has been living in South Africa for more than 14 years and now she is studying for a PhD degree at University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. The latest artwork from Kristin is a representation of her diary in South Africa. The techniques of her art creation are vast, including oil paintings, watercolour, installation, charcoal drawing and mono-print. As a migrant artist, it is hard to identify Kristin’s origin, race and nationality from her artwork. Kristin’s artwork is very personal and distinctive. It is a dialogue between the home context and current ‘foreign’ environment. This exhibition continues exploring Kristin’s new concept of abstract and figurative paintings as well as her ,newest installation of “flying bird and fish”. Free admission.
