Memories of Africa:
The opulent golden and reddish color of this intricate composition surrounds the image of a mother and her child in the most tender display of love. Lap Ngo created a powerful nostalgia through his love and knowledge of the Continent.
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.
