Ang-Ray's Solo Exhibit " Spiritual Journey 2010" - Chelsea NYC
Ang-Ray's art work draws from his many inspirations and influences acquired through his traveling and living around the world. Born in Borneo, Ang spent time living in Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Hong Kong, and London before coming to live and paint in New York City. Through the people and places he has come in contact with, Ang has fused his scenes of everyday life with a world view that expresses his feeling that his art "can result in a spiritual bonding between the artist and his audience."
Earlier art works were influenced and inspired by the Impressionists and Expressionists artists, especially Cézanne, Manet, Poussin, and Matisse. Ang-Ray has also drawn inspiration from Abstract-Expressionists such as Kandinsky, DeKooning, Bacon and Gorky. His work continues to evolve in two main directions: figurative expressionist & abstractions with a contemporary fresh twist. He is also inspired by artists such as Hoffman, Soutine, Carravagio and Tintoretto.
My art is inspired by the spirit of "Human Connection". It represents the journey of my life, connecting with people around the world. Inspirations came from my experiences & memories of Borneo(where I was borm), Singapore, London, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Australia & Europe where I have lived & visited. I currently live & create my artworks in Chelsea NYC.
Materials & tools
The materials are old-traditional & new Eastern - Western fusion. Traditional materials such as Chinese rice paper & oil medium are laminated & fused in with newer materials - acrylic metallic paints on canva. Creating my unique mixed media paintings on Canvas.
The 3 Series:
1) The Olympix (spell with an x)
The Olympix Series are ellipses interlocking each another -representing people of different races, colors - spiritually connecting with each other. The underlying colors reflect the wonderful cultures and
ethnicity within these people.
The colorful ellipses reflect people of different colors and races connecting with one another, creating understanding, tolerance & harmony amongst us. The Olympix Series is in part, a departure point from the Olympic Games logo.
2) The Organic
The Organic Series are studies, drawings & oil paintings of my observation of people connecting with the environments, landscape, room, space etc., in a zen & harmonious manner.
3) The Portrait
The Portrait Series are studies of the "inner connection" within theses subjects, observing who they really are - the face, the space & people around them. Art beyond the surface interest me more than the surface beauty.
"My artworks - drawings, prints & paintings are about the continues studies of my spiritually journey & human connection." Ang Ray
