Calculation and measurement are constantly throughout our lives. We are dealing with numbers since birth. Our everyday life has changed since the pandemic, we are living on guard, more alert, sensitive, and critical with numbers. We keep counting after counting, patiently hoping our days could transform back to normal.

Artist biography

Pamela Leung is a Sydney-based emerging artist, with a Master of Fine Arts in painting from the National Art School, 2016. Following this, Leung received the Emerging Artist Prize in the 65th Blake Prize 2018, as well as exhibiting widely in Australia, Taiwan, Sweden, Hong Kong, Paris, and now London.

 

For Leung, the most significant shaping of her identity came from her immigrating to Australia, from Hong Kong, in the 1970s as a part of the Chinese diaspora. She shares, "in the ensuing years of acclimatising to my environment, so much of my heritage has been lost, diluted and forgotten; to be replaced by new and eye-opening ideas and transformations of the self in the new world.”

 

The use of the colour red and a mixed media practice, combined with her migratory experience, allows the audience to meditate on the mundane routine, everyday life, relationships, connections, displacement and diaspora.
