Solo painting exhibition "Preserved" by Anita Yan Wong at the historic Canessa Gallery “My current works have been dealing with preservation of nature and the ancient art form that honors it – “Guo hua”; patterns in nature and the roles of traditional Art forms in the digital art age. In “Preserved”, I have preserved strange finds from nature under glass with backgrounds of “Guo hua” – both fragile but beautiful. They are given a second life and are frozen in time with new meanings under the glass, they tell stories of their existence and lives.”
