The work showcases the duality of life and nature, the yin and the yang, the good and the bad. The only colors I will be using are black and white, using these 2 colors, displaying the positive and negative sides. The power struggles of both sides of the equilibrium, as well as how they interrelate with each other. I have made my work look like a cute monster to show that looks can be deceiving.

I have always been interested in the opposition and contrast of a concept and my work shows different sides of life. The idea that every single human being has good and evil within them and they are always struggling to find an equilibrium and eventually blurs the morals of what is “good” or “bad”. The person we are right now versus the person we wish we were, but being human means imperfect. That is the essence of the duality of life; being imperfect but wishing we were.

Ong Yee Yong is a printmaking artist who works in a variety of media. By examining the ambiguity and origination via retakes and variations, she tries to increase the dynamic between audience and author by objectifying emotions and investigating the duality that develops through different interpretations.
Her artworks question the conditions of appearance of an image in the context of contemporary visual culture in which images, representations and ideas normally function. By studying sign processes, signification and communication, she wants the viewer to become part of the art as a kind of added component. Art is entertainment: to be able to touch the work, as well as to interact with the work is important.
