"Although abstract in nature I like my works to have figurative associations. I see my works as narrative fields for strange happenings reminiscent of surrealist painters from whom I also derived the idea of automatic painting. The latter process allows me to have access to inner spaces which are largely autobiographical. I use colour and shapes primarily for their emotive and evocative powers".
Mario Ng. London 1996.

Mario Ng
