Description

In using the most popular children classics to interpret the contemporary experience and existence, Joey Leung has unveiled the narrative power and cloudy side of fairy tales. In her paintings, pictorial images and literary rhymes function as symbols and metaphors. Her observations of the city and its people are expressed through classical plots and roles. The results are a mixture of irony and absurdity. Yet, the apparent mockery also enriches the characters in that they have now taken on a contemporary role and their stories provided with interesting parallels. Through the artist's newly adopted plots and adornment, our favorite fairy tales appear ever more relevant.
