Fung Ming Sum (b.1991) graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University, in 2015. After graduation, she focuses on paintings and drawings.
Compared with figures, she pays more attention to spiritual states and atmospheres. In creation, she tries to explore the relationship between chaos and tranquillity, and show their internal struggles through artworks. In order to represent the chaotic conditions of reality, she tries to handle qualities like brushstrokes, colors, the primary and secondary roles of foreground and background, clearness and blurriness in a messy way; while in order to be tranquil, she tries to control the visual energies brought by colors and brushstrokes in different parts of the pictorial surfaces well.
Fung Ming Sum mainly creates with her personal experiences, and tries to achieve visual balances on the artworks, seeking stability among turbulence. Since 2016, Fung Ming Sum has started creating a series of paintings, named “Persona", to re-examine the relationships between creator and portrayed targets, with drawings and/or paintings and words. The artist is now living and working in Hong Kong.
