Ivana Ng

My works are a reflection of my upbringing in Flushing, Queens within a multicultural family and community. Incorporating paintings, photos, and documents, I collected various elements telling the stories of my parents coming to the United States and finding a home in Flushing. Having grown up in Flushing, my environment has found its way into my works as I juxtapose natural and man made materials much like Flushing’s mix of densely populated areas situated next to open and seemingly isolated spaces of nature.
    

Who are we? is a collage of writings, photos, and paintings I compiled documenting family members once undocumented, some of them also shown in Home. In both works, the privacy and importance and of their faces and stories come forward and fall behind bits of identity. Representing my parents’ home cities are works Detached and Casa di Mia Mamma. As Rooting depicts my hometown, Flushing and maps personal points of importance, Attached is the home I grew up in. Connecting myself to these people and spaces, I incorporated various natural materials collected over time from meaningful moments in life.
