First Step showcase exhibition by artist Jessica Tsang. This exhibition was supported by the Personal Artist Development (PAD) scheme.
The work was an attempt by the artist to introduce "old fashion inventiveness" into their practice by examining the dynamic between the qualities of the painted image and the physical wooden under structures the representation occupied. The work explored the evolution of the artist's practice from 2D paintings to increasing 3D artworks and how paintings were at the "mercy of the physical properties of the surface it occupies". The painting still existed to "inform and resolve the structure" but was become less a mode of representation in the artist's artworks.
