A Response to the work of Hong-Ling Wee- Soft Lines Hard Edges Featured in Ceramics Art and Perception 2013 Issue 92
View of Hong-Ling-Wee’s Installation
Multiple, unit, individual details, these and other words come to mind when looking at Hong-Ling Wee’s work. The viewer is greeted by a wall with three six shelves three shelves high containing what appear to be houses. On closer inspection the viewer is rewarded with the unique depth and attention to detail on each house. Some windows are carved others are painted and some surface areas are weathered while others are ultra-pristine. The display is a crucial component in the success of this work, giving the viewer what could be comparable to an aerial view of a neighborhood or community. Wee’s work is an excellent example of taking ceramic objects to another level, making objects that are uniquely fulfilling as an individual objects and as individual objects within a group.
