Dragon Interception: Little Dragon Asking for Direction-New works by Allen Wong
“Art criticism is the discussion or evaluation of the inner and outer characteristics of visual arts in the context of narrative and form. The direction for criticism includes exploration relating to the art works themselves, their creative background or the social effects the works may create, and so on.”
Due to various factors, artists in Macao very rarely possess this kind of background, and it is even rarer to find an artist who has good knowledge of both art theory and creative skills. Over the past few years, Allen Wong has never attempted to conceal the possibility of a theoretical explanation of his art. Each effort represents the product of liberal thought; each step, from the initial formation of the idea to the final product, represents his devotion to art.
