Outside The Field

By Michelle Loa Kum Cheung

£ 625.00

This work depicts architectural features of dragon houses, a type of housing from the artist’s grandparents’ home village of Meizhou. ‘Outside The Field’ is part of a series of works exploring the artist’s growing geographical dislocation between her family lineage, her real present and imagining the future.

Pyrography is the technique of burning directly into wood with a hand-held tool. Favouring the tactility and raw materiality of wood, the artist employs pyrography and oil with a focus on intentional mark making. The physicality of the techniques used is an attempt to exert ownership over the elusiveness of memory, time and place - inherently flawed, disjointed and the subject of idealistic escapism.
