“BLUE” is a Contemporary Traditional Photography series – a collection of Sun prints from Wong’s original Chinese paintings.
Sun prints (AKA blue photograph) is photography without the use of camera.
The title – “Blue” reflects the blues the artist faces as less and less young viewers appreciate and practice traditional painting in the digital age.
The project is an “act”/ performance of the artist making photo negatives of her traditional paintings (darkness) and bringing Sunlight into the art form (hope) resulting in the creation of “Contemporary Traditional” arts (creation).
“THE BLUE ARTIST” is a self-portrait of the artist – Anita Yan Wong
