Patrick Ng

Patrick Ng (b. 1988) has been hard at work in the CE Studios since 2018. Experimentations and explorations with color are a central concern in Ng’s paintings and collages. From large abstract paintings to small collages, Ng seeks to understand color both as a formal element and as an idea.

Early on at CE, Ng gravitated toward working at a large scale. His paintings are vibrant celebrations of bright line work and radiant shapes. At a more modest scale he makes collages that feature small cut circles and squares colorized by hand. These assemblages are playful compositions in geometric form. More recently Ng has been attracted to wallpaper and consumer wall paint samples. In cutting up these swatches, he builds layered collages that reveal how color itself is named, catalogued and organized for everyday use.
