Artist Statement

Belonging to a generation of young western-trained Hong Kong artist, Michelle returned to Hong Kong in 2011 to pursue her art career after living almost two decades in Vancouver, Canada. Owing to her multi-faceted background and international outlook, she draws inspirations from a wide range of sources and popular sub-cultures, including fairy tales, children’s picture books, the Japanese Otaku, fifteenth-century European etching, as well as traditional Chinese painting. Animals and their relationships with humans, explored from various intellectual and philosophical angles whether emotional, sustenance, or environmental, is a long recurring thread in her works.

In March 2010, she was awarded an artist residency at Canada’s prestigious Banff Centre. In July 2013, she traveled to Listhús Art Space, Iceland, for a month-long residency. Her works have been exhibited in the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Hong Kong, Korea and China. Her exhibition I Don’t Know if You Know How Much I Love You (March 2012) was the first solo show at hi art store, a gallery project of Beijing art tycoon Wu Jing. In November 2012, she began to work with Michael Goedhuis Gallery (London, U.K.) that has an international reputation of dealing Asian art for over two decades. She was declared as a winner of the Young Artist Competition organized by Asia Top Gallery Hotel Art Fair 2012 and also received an Award of Excellence in the Second Greater China Illustration Awards. Her works have been featured in the media numerous times, and are in international private collections, and The Canada Council Art Bank.
