Cindy Leung is an artist who was born and raised in Hong Kong, currently residing in Gainesville, FL. She calls many places home. Home is a borrowed place on borrowed time for her. Her work focuses on the complex relationship between consumerism, colonization, and cultural hybridity. By making materially hybrid objects out of poppy seeds and Chinese exports– silk, tea, and porcelain, she sees her work as a way to create a visual manifestation of the hybridity in her culture and languages.
Leung holds an MFA in Ceramics from University of Florida and a BFA from Queens College, City University of New York. Her work has been featured in numerous group exhibitions nationally and internationally, including exhibitions in China, California, Washington, New York, Florida, and Louisiana. Her current solo exhibition is at Pensacola Museum of Art (FL). Leung’s upcoming solo exhibition will be at Gallery 456 in New York.
