"These ethereal works convey a succession of bleak mountainous forms, punctuated with diaphanous layers that shift and fluctuate across the picture plane.
"Constructed with undulating scrolls of rice paper encased in perspex, they are at once, compelling in their fragile beauty but also vaguely menacing. This is exactly as the artist intended: deforested and uninhabited, WONG’s scene envisages the ghostly premonition of some future dystopia after a catastrophic environmental disaster.
Satirically entitled Far Away, this series addresses the political and social inertia at play in response to increasing environmental degradation and climate change. WONG implies that the scene depicted belongs to an imperceptible and distant future – simply too far from the present to warrant any real action". – Anna Briers
