“Go Nuts!”


by Elaine Keung

With her solo show, Elaine challenges our perception of high and low brow art, by using traditional painting methods to reflect 2-D rigidity. The artist’s paintings are created using brush and acrylic yet reflect pixelated or crystalized graphic design sensibilities. Elaine’s works have fused the two worlds together to yield notions of impressionist masters mixed with present day cartoons. The “nuts” are the playful characters in her pieces that portray the nuances of everyday life. Elaine was born in Beijing in 1976, raised in Hong Kong and received her bachelors from the Hong Kong Polytechnic University.
