About Nicholas Choong

About the artwork

The Terra Firma series of works are a welcome departure from last years' acrylic on canvas abstract works. Choong ventures into an unconventional and unknown territory right now. Terra Firma alludes to mother earth. For him, it's a way to be grounded in a particular practice and experimentation, as he believes that the only thing constant, is change. Textures fascinate Choong. Marks on the asphalt, paint peeling off the walls, lichen, stalagmites, water erosion, decay are all part of the natural world. The series celebrates nature by fusing materials in his studio like aluminium, steel, oil paint, turpentine, solvents and pigments : guided partly by Choong and You as the observer. Without you, there is no him. It's the same for light and dark, front and back, forwards and backwards. While spontaneity and a playful spirit is required in the making of art, a mechanical element is present too. For some it may be the washing of brushes, stretching canvasses, mixing colors, researching etc. With these works, He brings the mechanical element into the painting and creating process. It's a play. It's an act. It's a dance. Any art form is fundamentally about that.
