Vanessa Krystin Wong
Vancouver artist Vanessa Krystin Wong makes works about nature and decay. As the artist describes her art practice,
"My works derive from the unexplainable awe and wanderlust of decay and ruin, using natural aesthetics and forms. The emotional affects placed upon my works is juxtaposed with the explorations of why such aesthetics of decay create a sense of beauty that cannot be definitively explained, other than a sense of curiosity and magnetism. Through beautifully haunting and ethereal materialities, an otherworldly environment is created where audience’s may escape to battling the known to the unknown."
In the two projects shown above—Only I Would Count Stars At Night and By Tomorrow We’ll Be Lost— Wong creates new worlds that viewers will want to step into. Currently, Wong is working on her last year of her degree and planning for her graduate show in April. To see more of her work, click here.
