About Jon Ng

The process of painting fascinates me. It begins with a visual inspiration that evolves
in my studio in the act of painting.
The greatest challenges and accomplishments for me as an Artist
lie in capturing (in line, color and texture) the veritable qualities,
as well as the emotional
and spiritual essence of a subject.


Jon Ng’s work maintains a bridge between classical still-life and figurative painting and contemporary art. One feels the strong presence of a 600 year old tradition in the midst of having a 21st. century visual experience. Mr. Ng paints a certain reality; yet evokes a sense of solitude, displacement and transformation. His work is as simple and beautiful as it is rife with human and earthly complexities.
