Works and lives in Hong Kong



Elise Lai is an artist based in Hong Kong, whose works use painting, photography, video, and mixed media to embrace the elements that surround everyday life.  Her work seeks to capture the distant intimacy in the banality of routines, personal habits, and mundane chores.  She is interested in the residues of everyday life, always wondering what remains after these experiences have taken place — the emotional and physical changes to the apprehended environment, the residual effects, and the sensory attention to the materiality of things that can be suggested and evoked.
