AboutMediha Ting is a London based painter whose work explores notions of place and the artist's experience as a âmodern day nomad'. For her First Step exhibition at Chinese Arts Centre, Ting presents Fragmented London, a vibrant series of work which reflect the diversity of her current locale interweaved with the collected memories she has experienced on her many travels.
Fragmented London is a body of work comprising twelve multi-layered paintings which are installed to create a patchwork of expressions of the city. The works are created through the image-making process of overlapping transparent images. Parts of the images are lost with the new form emerging as revealing and concealing at the same time. Boundaries start to dissolve as memories of past experience merge and connect in a fragmented but separately identifiable way, creating a densely layered expression of place.
