By comparison with or relation to socio-cultural and historical aspects of the 'points', the components of art work and the person of a portrait, Ng makes portraits with contextual circumstances that connect a multitude of cultures.
As with the technique of “Pointillism” whereby notable painters such as Seurat, Signac and Van Gogh used distinct dots of colour applied in patterns to form images, Ng works with a versatile range of materials to express the desired outcome, often replacing paint with symbolic collectible items or memorable and suitable, iconic paraphernalia.
