"What interests me most are things* that I don't understand nor have control of. It is important for me trying to understand the process of how we all perceive and construct the reality. This is my subject and that is why I paint."

Lam Wong, born in 1968, to an artistic family (calligrapher father and pianist mother) in Xiamen, China. Grew up in Hong Kong during the 80s and immigrated to Canada at age of 19. Lam studied design, art history and painting, both in Alberta and BC. He is currently practicing painting as his main medium. Lam sees both painting and art making as an on-going spiritual practice. His main subjects are on perception of reality, the meaning of art, and the relationships between time, memory and space. Lam lives and works in Vancouver, Canada since 1998.

*Things - time, space, memory, perception, reality, phenomenon, relationship, meaning, lust, art, human consciousness...
