"Wear poetry as both perfume and armor." Wong's words and artistry are both vibrant with color, richly textured, defiant, and unapologetic in their boldness. Her speaker begins her spiritual journey of remembrance that transcends body, tradition, or even nation in the pursuit of authentic art that is constructed through the radical acceptance of the past in order to leave it all behind. Turning to Wallpaper is a story where no wounds are left unconfronted or softened. It is beautiful, without beauty. There is "pain, but no victimhood."
