Camila Wong’s The Evolution of Self-Identity at the Bluffs Gallery @ The Bluffs Gallery
May 3 – Jun 28 all-day

The Evolution of Self-Identity presents art works created by Peruvian born artist, Camila Wong. Wong’s exhibit explores self-identity through the combination of themes relating to art therapy, everyday life, humour, reflection, environment and social issues. Wong’s works can be seen to depict her bold artistic style of applying heavy paint and using repetitive, expressive energetic lines and brushstrokes to create optical illusion, lively movement, harmony and unity.

The Evolution of Self-Identity was curated by María Alejandra Olórtegui Ibáñez.
