Michelle Kuen Suet Fung’s Plastic, plastic, every where! – Michelle’s first creative endeavor involving moving images. This video is comprised of hundreds of images, each meticulously hand-drawn, cut out and scanned before being compiled digitally. Fung rejects calling this work animation. Oblivious to animation history and convention, her work is firmly grounded in the tradition of drawing, much like that of William Kentridge.

Michelle Kuen Suet Fung

Belonging to a generation of young western-trained Hong Kong artist, Michelle returned to Hong Kong in 2011 to pursue her art career after living almost two decades in Vancouver, Canada. Owing to her multi-faceted background and international outlook, she draws inspirations from a wide range of sources and popular sub-cultures, including fairy tales, children’s picture books, the Japanese Otaku, fifteenth-century European etching, as well as traditional Chinese painting. Animals and their relationships with humans, explored from various intellectual and philosophical angles whether emotional, sustenance, or environmental, is a long recurring thread in her works.
