Silia Ka Tung

b. 1974, China

Silia Ka Tung uses her hands to create soft painted and decorated canvas sculptures. Merging Chinese and Greek mythology with Japanese manga, Hindu philosophy and Korean media, she personifies traditional magic, wisdom and religion into contemporary morphologies which foreground a contesting naivete and innocence that inspire while transgress; the softness of the material and the blissful colour-palette distract from the underlying opaque narrative to suggest the intricacy of our human condition and natural order via an evolutionary transformation.
