The Amusing Melancholy of Crooked Faces: Paintings by Jeffrey Chong Wang
I’m sure you have photos that show you as if you were in the middle of something, like you were talking or doing something, and then you were suddenly filmed. As a result, the face in the photo freezes halfway through, turning into the funny grimace of a hung-over degenerate.
In his work, artist Jeffrey Chong Wang often explicitly tries to replicate this effect. It turns out funny, a little sad, but nice – and coupled with the postmodernist themes paintings and get something of mystery.
