Tight - Eric Ng
If you haven’t seen this show yet then get your skates on, it closes on the 26th August and it’s the last show for Tight Projects in this space.
I first saw Eric Ng’s work in the group show at Tight earlier this year and almost bought 1 but missed out, he does Penguin’s well and the mascot for Sixtoeight happens to be a Penguin and these works in this show are so hard to resist. It’s his first ever Solo and I’m so happy I got to see it and hope and pray he doesn’t stop.
Eric’s background is Architecture and with that he’s painted and drawn detailed drawings of birds directly onto polished wood, there is only 7 works in this show but each and everyone is a masterpiece. The strips of painted colour is giving the affect of dripping onto the finished drawing as if to provoke a response from the subjects, the colours he has used are intense and bring the birds to life.
So I implore you to see these works in real life if you are in Sydney...
