Wendy Ng: "Resurgence is aptly named for this time of my life. After a whole decade of developing skills in decorating eggs with dyes and a wax-resist technique, I have just begun to explore etching with acid and engraving tools. At the same time, I am reconnecting with old skills and learning new techniques in drawing. With the COVID-19 Pandemic, the enforced stay-at-home period has allowed me to re-evaluate the directions of my artistic energy. The pieces I have chosen for HorseSpirit Arts Gallery Resurgence Art Show reflect much of the lessons I have learned."
"The design of Schools was started in late 2019 and the work was stalled and restarted. Its resurgence as a viable finished art piece occurred during the stay-at-home phase of the 2020 COVID-19 Pandemic when public school students are staying at home and learning in small family groups, much like the fish in the egg design. Hence the name Schools."
Light green, large chicken egg, dyed and gold ink highlights - approximately 2-1/16” tall and 1-5/8” wide.
