Aze Ong

Aze Ong is a Manila-based artist working with crocheted sculptural forms, installation, and performance. Her works range from small sculptural pieces to large-scale crocheted installations that elicit a visual conversation with and within the site.  The works may be floor-based, suspended from the ceiling, or wearable. The works are distinct for their tactile properties, unusual color harmonies, and shapes leaning towards abstraction. Since patterns result from the instantiation of the artist’s affective state and cognitive impulses at a given time, each creation is unique. The works underscore the process-oriented nature of creation and phenomenological experience of the artist. She is currently in New York for her Asian Cultural Council (ACC) grant.
