Juliana Ong

Concerned mostly with the translation of “writings in the language of drawing” and the surprising narratives found in repetitive marks and nebulous formings that occur along the way. In these wonderfully meticulous renderings, Juliana seems to make abstraction deliberate, but craves the beauty in an “awe of decipherment.” Something that makes me think she has that rare ability to surprise herself with her own work, regardless of how much time she spends making it which, looking at Portraits (pictured), could be quite a while.
