Sculptor Mei Chan-Long turns to art-making as a vehicle for self-expression. Alternating between contemporary and figurative sculptures, Chan-Long's sculptures act as lines of communications, translating experiences and emotions that are often times difficult to verbally articulate.
Her sculptures express undergoing emotional and spiritual changes. These apparent contradictions that present themselves in Chan-Long's sculptures point to the fluctuating emotions that ebb and flow within us.
Her work has been shown at Sculptors Society of Canada, Visual Arts Centre of Clarington, Etobicoke Civic Centre, Nathan Phillips Square, Union Station, Globe & Mail Centre, TIFF, Toronto galleries and publications. Employment background is design in marketing, working with furniture, period jewelry and creating with special children.
