Nicole Wong / Amal Lin
Feb 4 – Mar 10, 2023
Cotton in the Ears, Furball in the Throat is Hong Kong artist Nicole Wong’s (b. 1990) third solo exhibition with Rossi & Rossi. Working beyond a single medium, Wong’s practice investigates the tenuous connections between words, objects, and image, inviting introspective reflection through the exploration of ideas such as failure, hope, and miscommunication. Central to the theme of this exhibition this time is both a yearning for comfort – a sentiment that many of us experienced throughout the pandemic – and the feeling of uneasiness about being inches away from it.
Journey is Taiwanese artist Amal Lin’s (b. 1992) debut solo exhibition. Lin studied watercolour and oil painting at a young age, and her interest in Middle Eastern art started when she was exposed to the Arabic language and calligraphy as an undergraduate student at the University of Jordan. This fascination quickly turned into a passion as Lin enrolled in the Prince’s Foundation School of Traditional Arts in London to further her practice. Her paintings therefore draw heavily from the Persian miniature tradition, depicting the artist’s inner spiritual reality with extreme detail.
