Narnia is part of a series where the artist takes a playful return to clouds as one of her early fascinations combined with her current style of linear divisions between organic forms. The fantastical colours of the clouds are a form of escapism from the everyday constraints of reality, interspersed between mountains hand burned into the wood, and also an acknowledgement of the Chinese myths of mountains so high they reach the heavens. 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.
