About the artist:
Pamela See (Xue Mei-Ling) is an Australian artist born of Chinese descent. She practices a contemporary form of papercutting, similar to traditional Chinese Foshan. Migration is a recurrent theme in her artworks, which range from intimately scaled artist books to monumental steel sculptures. Since graduating from the Queensland College of Art in 1999, See has contributed to exhibitions across Australia, Asia, Europe and North America, including the National Gallery of Victoria and the Museo Gustavo de Maeztu in Spain. In 2007, she made her first appearance in the Beijing art scene, featuring in exhibitions at 798 Red Gate Gallery, NY Arts and the Pickled Art Centre. Her artwork is held in public collections, such as the Huaxia Papercutting Museum, National Gallery of Australia and Art Gallery of South Australia.
