Suk-Fong – Red-Yellow-Blue displayed in the Hall of One Hundred Rivers window frames during the 淑芳你好嘛(Suk-Fong Nay Ho Mah) / Suk-Fong, How Are You? exhibition at the Dr. Sun-Yat Sen Classical Chinese Garden. As a triptych, these show Suk-Fong through different stages of her life. On the left, two of her portraits from 1945 (age 20, photographed in China), and 1973 (age 48, photographed in Canada) are presented in Red. On the right, two of her portraits from 1990 (age 65), and 2010 (age 85) are presented in Blue. In the centre, a formal family portrait shows a four-month old Suk-Fong in 1925, photographed in Au Folk, Toisan, China, in Yellow.


This work was part of Occupying Chinatown, Paul Wong’s year long residency at the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Chinese Classical Garden. To see the rest of the works curated for this visit:
