heading new york series

The New York Series encompasses the period 1965 to 1969. It was an attempts to reflect Dr Choong's rustic Asian reaction towards the Western metropolitan world, in his case from rural Perak to the city of New York to face cultural shock and the new comer's bewildered syndrome.
The organic-cum-geometric visual canvases he did then reflect the tension I experienced in the fast and hectic world of New York. He combined hard-edged shapes with impasto patches of textured areas embedded with sand pebbles in my oil compositions.
纽约系列的创作于 1965 至 1969 年间。他尝试在作品中反映他刚从马来西亚近打乡区来到西方的大都会所面对的文化震撼以及繁华都市环境的挑战和压力。
在这些油画作品中,锺博士並列了有机图形和几何图形在同一画面上,以反映在繁忙的纽约所经历的紧张心态,而以硬边图形配合沙石粗糙区域去构成画面。这种強烈造型对比营造了视觉的冲力,并以纽约画派派的手法营造了视觉图象,以激活体造型间的空间关系,使色彩呈现出冲前或退后的效果,肌理和视觉轻重的处理则进一步提升了视觉效果。
