Aileen Chong, ‘ Rugiente Rojo’, Exhibit by Aberson

Rugiente Rojo by artist Aileen Chong is a red, orange, yellow, and brown contemporary abstract mixed media painting on canvas that measures 48 x 48 and is priced at $5,300.

Aileen Chong communicates through her paintings. Her background as a female Chinese Peruvian growing up in Long Island, New York, has played a significant role in her body of work. The values of American life intermixed with the customs of Peru and traditions of China created a divergent sense of self for Chong. A visual representation of her fractured sense of identity, her work is a dialogue about cultural fusion rooted in personal experiences.
