Corn Shuk Mei is a painter, day-dreamer and wanderer.She graduated with an MFA from Wimbledon College of Arts in 2016. She lives and works in London. Since graduating she has shown her works in both solo and group exhibitions in the UK and Hong Kong, and her works reside in several private collections.

These works document her interest in what is lost and what is found, the ambivalence between what is the fleeting memory and what is synthesized as a trace within the landscape.
Corn is having solo exhibitions at the Jam Factory Gallery, Oxford and Building BloQs, London, in summer and Coningsby Gallery in September respectively. Her work “Night Swim Series, Mirror: Crystal” has been selected by Visual Art Open 2018 and will be exhibited in Chester Cathedral and Chester Arts Fair 2018.
