In the High Grass:
The warm orange, reddish color highlighted by the golden light of a late afternoon in the dry season serve as background for the gracious posture of this African mother despite the heavy load on her head, the young offspring on her back, and the boy holding her left hand.
From the islands of Halong Bay to the dusty back roads of south Texas, Lap Ngo has traveled the world. His paintings are an expression of his journeys. They speak to us as beautifully as the "Bride" in the African Series tells us of her wedding day. Lap captures life in all his paintings from all his worlds whether that is a European village or a forgotten castle in Morocco.
