Artist Statement

CUTMR-RM-211-2This quartet’s room treads the fine line between fact and fiction, science and art, confusion and creativity, and breakthroughs and breakdowns. Through cross-disciplinary techniques, the work is simultaneously technical and accurate, naive and romantic, and speaks to a renewed wonder in the world and the things that surround us, what we with to surround us.

Biographies

This quartet’s room treads the fine line between fact and fiction, science and art, confusion and creativity, and breakthroughs and breakdowns. Through cross-disciplinary techniques, the work is simultaneously technical and accurate, naive and romantic, and speaks to a renewed wonder in the world and the things that surround us, what we with to surround us.

Keophila’s current practice includes embroidery, cutwork, illustration and papercutting. Her themes vary from relationships, communication, identity and Canadiana but always centre around control, repetition and creative manipulation.

F. Lim Tung received a Master of Architecture from the University of Toronto. She teaches architecture, and has received several awards for her work which deals largely with contemporary considerations of traditional types, small spaces, and craft techniques.

K. Lim Tung’s work has been widely exhibited and published, and is sold internationally. Her work focuses on the play between the familiar and the whimsical and expresses a nostalgic connection to material culture.

Margono received his graphic design degree in 2007. He currently works as a freelance graphic designer, with recent clients including Underline Studio and his Mom’s church friends. He is a practicing bureaucrat by day and illustrator by night.
