Dominique Fung is a Toronto-based painter who combines a neo-Surrealist vocabulary with a painterly classicism. Fung’s visual narrative focuses on a critical view of the cultural diaspora that connects seemingly separate identities. Fung reinterprets iconic North American and Canadian landscape paintings from the 20th century by displacing subjects and interjecting elements that represent the cultural diversity present in the current generation, in order to re-examine that space. Fung has exhibited her paintings in USA, Spain, Canada. Her works often incorporate references to her extensive traveling experience..
In The 14th Factory, Fung’s specially commissioned paintings are featured in the installation environment of The Barmecide Feast, both as a response to, and a replacement of, the European neo-classical paintings that appeared in the original set piece in 2001: A Space Odyssey.
