Ming Fay - Nature Reborn: From Archaeology to Science Fiction
February 2 - March 23
Ming Fay's sculptures challenge our perceptions of truth, scale and time. This installation consisted of over 100 of Ming Fay's mixed media sculptures whose imagery is derived from vegetables, fruits, plant, animal skeletons, and other organic structures all reproduced on a huge scale, some larger than human size. The works, from 1979 - 1990, some representational and others more ambiguous, bring renewed attention to the spirituality and transience of nature, with a sense of humor and mortality. The work is startling both for its humor and the decay that hovers over these near perfect forms.
