“The work expresses different forms (or another side) of ‘love’ through colours and lines.
Fuchsia represents the heroine; and purple blue represents the male lead and his fantasy.
The mix of different colours tells the stories of the two lovers, such as the efforts and changes they have made for one another, their struggles and disagreements from time to time, disappointments, hopelessness, and most importantly the love and kindness during the process.”

ToA Connect is a creative project connecting artists through digital implementations – collaborating traditional artists/designers with new media or converting computer languages into art.
In a world of digitalization, the use of computer has become an alternative or the next generation of pencil and ink. With the increasingly importance of new media, we would like to collect, connect and explore the interactions between traditional art/design practice and digitalization through this project.
Through accumulation of creative concepts and educational implementations, Time of Art (ToA) operates and manages traditional artistic heritage, develops platforms to showcase innovative ideas, bridges traditional with contemporary art whilst aiming to be the pioneer and promoter of creative culture.
Watch curator, Marcus Wong, in conversation with host, Adolfo Aranjuez, talking about the artworks from ToA Connect.
Love in the Air by Emily Wong is presented as part of ToA Connect and Mapping Melbourne 2020-21.
