This playful exhibition of new original wood carvings demonstrates artist Michelle Fung’s development to merge woodcut and drawings. This exhibition features works from her ongoing “The World of 2084” project, alongside works that celebrate the Year of the Dragon. 


The original wood carvings are presented as original paintings rather than partial printmaking process.  The unique medium demonstrates the artist’s continued experimentation to merge woodcut and drawing techniques. The former presents a unique aesthetics that can only be achieved with a blade, whereas the latter is versatile and can be intuitive, loose, laboured or layered.


This exhibition gives a rare glimpse of an artist’s artistic development and displays the artist’s woodcut development since 2018, including some of her tools and her very first lino block practice. In 2018, Michelle Fung bought a box of tools and a woodblock from Shenzhen Dafen Village and made her first woodcut. She is completely self-taught and can tell you a million failure stories if you let her.


Five years and over 100 woodblocks later, she realised her favourite part of the entire printmaking process is carving. Tracing her roots in drawing and further exploring her obsession with woodcut, she has developed a unique style of “original wood carvings”, combining drawing and woodcut together.
