Exhibition:

"Fumbling Calamities"
Fu-On Chung


Opening: Wednesday 31 October, 6 - 8 pm
Dates: 31 October - 24 November



Catalogue:
Fumbling Calamities
Text by Lucinda Bennett



Fu-On Chung’s painting practice is typified by a sensibility of confusion, exuberance and excess. 'Fumbling Calamities' charts the course of this painter as he stumbles, wobbles and fumbles his way towards a new body of work. For this painter, concreteness is jettisoned in favour for the elusive, seriousness is discarded for frivolity, and insipid greys are forced to succumb to glorious fields of colour. Fumbling Calamities utilizes the arena of ‘the canvas’ to explore the potential for excess to generate new modes of sensory encounter through the mimicry, invention and recombination of forms and painterly motifs.

This exhibition includes an accompanying text written by Lucinda Bennett.

Fu-On Chung is a Melbourne-based New Zealand artist. He is a current MFA candidate at the Victorian College of the Arts. He holds a BVA with first class honours from AUT University, Auckland (2013). He was a founding member and co-director of GLOVEBOX Artist-Run Gallery in Auckland 2015-2017.
