WRONG WAY GO BACK — JASON WING

Jason Wing’s artworks are signs of hope that express the power of positive thinking for regeneration.  The act of recycling, of rebirth through the addition of another layer of history, is an important starting point for this artist.  His work is not about denial, but about the possibility of rebirth.  It draws on his own negotiation of identity in the Australian cultural setting, combining elements from the rich traditions of his Aboriginal and Chinese heritages.

Wing has invented a personal iconography which he uses to stencil onto salvaged signs.  Using a predominantly red, yellow, black and white palette that pays homage to colours customarily used by each culture, and stencils produced by the Chinese paper-cut method, the artist layers his creations, often self-representations, onto the didactics of the old signs.
