Lam Wong

Lam Wong is a Canadian visual artist, designer and curator. His interest is primarily rooted in regional West Coast art history, with an emphasis on the development of painting and its avant-garde narrative. Lam’s creative approach is often concerned with blending Eastern philosophies and challenging the notion of painting.

After immigrating from Hong Kong during the 1980s, Lam studied design, art history and painting, both in Alberta and British Columbia. He is currently practicing painting and tea related artwork as his main media.

Lam and the Garden most recent collaborations were in: Chaji 茶寂,  his first exhibition that celebrated tea, as a gathering where people could come together to appreciate the beauty in the simple things of life. And also, for the exhibition Investigation of Things 格物, where he participated as a curator.  The Investigation of Things focused on how two different cultures observe, study, and understand individual items and objects, and how they fit into the world around us.

Lam sees art making as an on-going spiritual practice. His main subjects are the perception of reality, the meaning of art, and the relationships between time, memory and space. Lam has lived and worked in Vancouver BC since 1998.

“I want to create layers of meaning, not just by building relationship, making connection and creating dialogues of the art works, but also by bringing alight the invisibles, the gaps or intervals, and the mystery. It is achieved by expanding the dimension of time and space in my works.”
