Belonging to a series of paintings, in which (Wong) focuses on parts of the body, Back (2006) …is less of a portrait of a specific individual than of the eccentricities of the human back. Taut, and marked with the subtle nuances of shade and texture that only human skin offers, the portrait was executed after several sittings by the subject, posed up close against a white wall and at different times of the day”.
