    “The analysis of heritage and the introspection of the search have moved this painter toward the utilization of elements that signify forest, mountain, garden, cloud, and the great wind… Conceptualized in a free and imaginative manner, they are inseparable aspects of her unique style. Her creative process perpetuates the profound integration of races, customs, and cultures found in the country where she was born and where she developed as an artist. There is nothing casual here, everything has its reasons, but the fruits of such artistry retain the spontaneous aroma of authenticity.”

    - Alejandro G. Alonso, from the exhibition catalog

    This panoramic overview of the Flora Fong exhibition captures the vibrant essence of her pictorial universe.




    “The artist’s palette is one that bursts with a bouquet of vivid tropical colors, and with it, she masterfully reinterprets and personalizes the iconic elements that define her homeland, her surroundings –and essentially– her intimate universe. Fong’s favorite motifs appear and reappear in her work as to affirm her identity and main sources of inspiration: the Caribbean Sea and its marine life, the Caribbean winds, the mangroves, roosters, palm trees, banana groves, mountains, and then of course, her popular coladores de café (coffee strainers) and sunflowers.”
