Lamington Drive is pleased to present I Cut Fruit For You by Pey Chi 佩绮.Born from gestures of love and joy, I Cut Fruit For You is the first solo exhibition by Naarm-based, multidisciplinary artist Pey Chi. Inspired by her cultural curiosity and a need to connect to her Chinese-Malaysian (Hakka and Hokkien) culture, Pey Chi’s colour-filled works are a meditation on nostalgia, sentimentality and her diasporic experience.In her customary kitsch ’n’ cute style, every piece in the exhibition references memories of home and incorporates the humor and absurdity of living between two places. I Cut Fruit For You includes 29 paintings and ceramics with recurring motifs of flowers, foods, animals and caricatures that journeys her experience through chronic illness and navigating her identities. The work is an invitation to join Pey Chi on her journey between homes, to explore culture, experience colour and celebrate joy.Pey Qi Chin aka Pey Chi 佩绮 is well renowned for her hand-built ceramics, hand-poked tattoos, digital and analogue drawings and paintings. She has a background in textile design. Select group exhitions include: Soft Toy City, Rubicon Ari, Melbourne (2018); Cutie Patooties, Platform Arts, Geelong (2018); Lazy Oaf Take A Break, London (2018); Love me, love me, say that you love me, No Vacancy (2019); Sensitive Sweethearts, fortyfivedownstairs, Melbourne (2020); Going Underground, Campbell Arcade Melbourne (2021);
Coast to Coast, Saint Cloche, Sydney (2022).
