Hong Kong artist, Michelle Kuen Suet Fung’s latest works in her solo exhibition at Art Projects Gallery, titled “80/20”, calls for attention to the plight of wildlife affected by the ecological damage caused by humans, with particular scrutiny to the impact of human plastic consumption on marine life.
Michelle Fung’s works in the “80/20” series portray an ironically celebratory atmosphere that belie the solemnity of the underlying environmental issue, as a way to evoke deeper contemplation by the viewers who upon closer inspection, would realize that the colorful, confetti-like festive elements were in fact plastic debris and other harmful materials that are plaguing animal life.
Rendered in mixed media of ink, pigment, graphite and color pencil, Michelle Fung’s highly detailed works can be seen as a visually stunning ecological rally through art, to call upon viewers to reflect on the human impact on the natural world and increase the awareness of the environmental issue.
