biography

Pamela Leung is a Sydney based emerging artist. She graduated from the National Art School with a Master of Fine Arts in painting in 2016.

After moving from Hong Kong to Sydney in the 1970s, she enjoys a dual identity that is in her own words "Westernised" but intrinsically tied to her Chinese cultural heritage. Her works often draw on the migratory experience with relationships, connections, displacement and diaspora, which in turn tend to feature as the dominant themes her work.

The use of reds or whites in her works refer to cultural, spiritual and traditional memories as well as meditation, Zen, emotion and the ordinariness of everyday life. She frequently brings together found materials or everyday objects to create symbolic sculptures or installations. In the same way through mark making, her drawings are careful compositions of lines that strongly suggest meditations on the everyday.
