Joyce Kar Wye Ho

The central motif of Wye's art photography exhibition is the exploration of the floral fragment as a vector of emotion, time and identity. A revelation of luminescent colours and abstract, often ethereal forms, Wye's macro portraits provide glimpses of unseen or forgotten trajectories of the fragmented self. Photographing her subjects at the peak of their florescence, Wye's images also evoke a certain poignancy relating to the transient yet cyclical nature of life.
In her art, Wye often challenges the limits of her lenses to reflect and engage viewers in the way we feel, perceive, remember and dream. She also does this to mirror the diffuse and fluid boundaries of time and memory, of separation and connection.

In her first solo exhibition, Wye will be exhibiting 29 works. This exhibition is curated by Karl Grupe.
