"Ong's use of charcoal has also clearly reached a new level of maturity and technical complexity, combining deft, dark strokes from both the charcoal's tips and sides, as well as hypnotic, moody, rhythmic and sometimes idiosyncratic effects, which, together with the monumental size of the works, encourage the viewer to 'read' each line and imprint of a drawing. Ong's works have also begun to look more iconic, reflecting a growing interest in searching for visualizations and personifications of his own states of mind."
