Un Cheng’s exhibition What’s there when you ain’t home encapsulates a visual journal of the restless wanderer-painter in Iceland and Sham Shui Po. No two landscapes can be more different than the sparse winter of a Nordic Island and the hectic urban subtropics of Kowloon. Yet, the artist ravishes in the amorphous abstraction of atmospheric light, thick textures of oil, vibrant blocks of colours, and strokes of falling snow and rising vapour. Resonantly, these psychological landscapes lay bare the desire of an itinerant artist-traveller to resist loneliness, forge human connections, and fall in love with an eclectic world that at times feels geographically isolated and emotionally indifferent.

About Un Cheng

Born 1995, Cheng graduated from the Academy of Visual Arts, Hong Kong Baptist University in 2017. Creating paintings of whimsical colour and energy that infuses careful observation of urban life with a performance of childish imagination. The world occurs to her as an entanglement of wonder, experimentation, intense emotions and struggles. Cheng participated in the Gil residency programme in Iceland in 2018, and was the artist-in-residence at Blindspot Gallery’s residency programme in 2020.
