Sumei Chew

Australia

Though I always painted and made art, being an interior designer until recently did not leave me much time to participate in shows or exhibitions as I painted mainly on commission.

Now I live by the sea in a lovely quiet small town of 55000 people and my current art practice reflects my engagement with the beauty that surrounds me. I love capturing that space where real meets the magical; that thin line that separates the two realms. Perhaps this Divide is where the New evolves from. My hope is to be able to share this 'magical' space with everyone through my Art.

To do the above, I use mainly acrylic paint, brushes, pencils, palette, collage and sometimes my own fingers. In my art practice, I like to navigate the in-between spaces of reality using metaphors and symbolism to engage with people of different cultural backgrounds and to speak the shared feelings and hopes that we all have.

In our contemporary world… anything and everything is becoming possible. So if you like my approach and have something that you love to have visually on a canvas... I would love to help you create it.
