Maya Gallery is delighted to present Wild Fragments, a solo exhibition by Valerie Ng, where her observations of fragments of nature connect with experiments in eco-friendly art making.

Showcasing a collection of abstract views through an atmospheric ecosystem, the artworks are a creative response to interactions with nature and highlight, the wonders of the wild.

Valerie's works in oil on canvas are a continual exploration of organic forms, natural phenomena and hues, through distinctive mark making and textural surfaces inspired by nature. This exhibition will also feature works in papier-mache, where she creates large new forms using scrap paper for a greener footprint. Valerie has also created Stitched Fragments for this exhibition, made of canvas scraps sewn together, this composition is inspired by the Japanese craft of boro and a critical component of her explorations in eco-friendly art making. And for the first time, Valerie is exhibiting her augmented reality artworks – smaller objects with interactive elements that extend the narrative of the artworks and digitally transform our views.

There will be an Art Conversation session to discuss eco-friendly artmaking with the community, and an ARRRT workshop for children, where the artist hopes to inspire a greater appreciation for nature, the ecosystem, and the connections to art.

Explore the pathways of this exhibition to discover a greener perspective to art and greater appreciation of the natural world.

Supported by National Arts Council and curated by Vanessa Yeo, Wild Fragments will run from 2 to 30 July 2022 at Maya Gallery.

Art Walkthrough & Conversation: 16th July Sat. 2pm – 4pm. ARRRT Workshop 23rd July Sat. 1030am - 12pm. Register on website.
