About The Artwork

Through is part of a series which captures the intensity and intricacy of nature, with the subject of this particular piece the Minnamurra Rainforest in Australia, the artist’s home country. The reduction of colour and to highlight form and line is done intentionally to focus on the complexity and web of ecosystems in the rainforest, and also pyrography as a technique. The positioning of the image within a circle is an attempt to observe nature within a frame of understanding and constriction, as if to “capture” nature, which can never realistically never be accomplished Pyrography is the art of burning with heat on wood. The imagery has been drawn entirely by hand.

Michelle Loa Kum Cheung is a London based artist, recently relocated from Sydney, Australia. Loa Kum Cheung’s art is a study of the fragmentation and fabrication of memory and place, real or imagined. To inform her work, she draws on the natural world as a symbol of constant transience and decay. Loa Kum Cheung’s current practice is a response to her own dislocation from her cultural heritage and identity as an Australian with a Chinese Mauritian background. She employs the use of oil, gold leaf and pyrography in her paintings and drawings, favouring the raw materiality of wood as a base. Referencing contrasting modes of documentation, from old family photos to satellite earth imagery, Loa Kum Cheung aims to fabricate nostalgia for an imagined past and place, both familiar and alien.
