Cathleen Ching Yee Lau is a Hong Kong-based artist who devotes to develop her artworks with a new concept in sculpting space. She engages in mixed-media sculpture, cross-media, and large-scale installation.
Cathleen graduated from the Hong Kong Art School (RMIT), majoring in sculpture. Her works are explored to breaking through the inertia of materials and constantly inventing “sustainable and renewable” materials. She is now molding and carving wood with inverted sawdust material, re-sculpting space with attention to materials and atmosphere. Create mixed-media sculptures and installations with different media carvings with new materials, light and shadow to present another sight of atmospheres, and through the audience integration.

In 2016, she awarded with Selected Artwork Prize in Taipei Art Free Fair, and in 2015 awarded “The Best Art Work (Sculpture) ”. Her works have been exhibited in Switzerland, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macau.
In my artwork, I always attempt to display the natural phenomenon which I observed in the city as well as metaphorizing the status of humankind and society, and also likes to explore the supernatural and mysterious forces. I believe, the contrast trait is the status of being able to respond to mutual traction.
My artworks always presenting the characteristics of antique imagery and carving techniques. My works are about to question but inherited traditional carving sculpture, and connect with multi-media and audience in order to create the atmosphere to the overall space of carving. Thus, Thinking on The balance between the contemporary entity and contemporary virtual change on a form is one of the ironic element in my sculpture.
