Exhibition Statement
James Wong, a Chinese American self taught artist has been working non-stop for the past thirty years on his Future War marker drawings. This exhibition, James Wong: Invasion of the Pods features his recent large multi panel works and the proliferation of pods– small flying ships, some that are robots, others with pilots. These works range from two feet to eight feet long in a narrative comic strip format.

With an oeuvre of some six thousand five hundred drawings to date, James Wong is immersed in his invented worlds at war. Each military force is complete with its own logo, transportation fleet, war machines, arsenal, and personnel. Intense color, bold design and minute linear details are the calling card of James’ work. Drawings are created first with a black! marker outline and templates, then followed by intense colori! ng into the wee hours. In the artwork of James Wong, the iconography of model airplanes, comic books, and architectural blue print drawings merges with game design, avatars and war technology.

Born in Hong Kong in 1972, James grew up in New York City Chinatown and went to New York’s Art and Design High School. His work has been exhibited at Cooper Union, Margaret Bodell Gallery, Henry Street Settlement, Cuchifritos and American Primitive Gallery, all in New York City.

Shen Chen who began his art education in high school and continued his training at Shanghai Art College. In 1988, he came to the United States on a fellowship as artist in residence at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. He continued his studies at Boston University on an MFA scholarship the following year. Shen’s work blends multiple cultural elements as he layers concepts of time and space with Zen philosophy, meditation, and repetition.

Ming Fay is a Shanghai-born and New York based sculptor and professor. His work focuses on the concept of the garden as a symbol of utopia and the relationship between culture and nature. Drawing upon an extensive knowledge of plants both Eastern and Western, real and mythical, Fay creates his own calligraphic floating forest of reeds, branches and surreal species.  Ming Fay received his BFA in sculpture from Kansas City Art Institute and his MFA from University of California, Santa Barbara. He lives and maintains his studio in New York City.

Cui Fei was born in Jinan, China. Cui attended the Affiliate High School of Zhejiang Academy of Fine Arts (now China Academy of Fine Arts) where later she received her BFA degree in painting. Cui taught for three years as an assistant professor at the Shandong Academy of Fine Arts. She moved to the United States in 1996 earning her MFA degree in painting at Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Cui has been cited in various publications, including Art in America, The New York Times, and The New Yorker Magazine. She has received The Pollock-Krasner Foundation Grant, the NYFA Fellowship from New York Foundation for the Arts, the BRIO Award from the Bronx Council on the Arts and was selected into the Artists-in-the-Marketplace program at the Bronx Museum of the Arts.

Mary Ting is a visual artist working in installation, drawing, sculpture, video, and photography. Recent solo exhibitions in the NYC area include Lambent Foundation, Dean Project, metaphor contemporary art, and Kentler International Drawing Space.  Ting is a two-time recipient of the New York Foundation for the Arts fellowship, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council MCAF grantee, Gottlieb Foundation individual grant, Lambent Fellowship, and residencies at MacDowell Colony, Lower Eastside Printshop Special Editions, Dieu Donne Papermill Workspace, among others.  Ting currently teaches studio art at John Jay College and Transart Institute, New York/Berlin.

Aileen June Wang  received her Ph.D. in art history from Rutgers University in New Jersey, with a specialization in Renaissance art. Her research interests have evolved towards contemporary Chinese art, which originated during her stint as client advisor at Christie’s, New York. Current research projects revolve around Chinese and Chinese American contemporary artists whose works grapple with nostalgia and the use of the past in defining what being Chinese means. She completed a National Endowment for the Humanities summer fellowship on Asian American art this July, at New York University, and holds an appointment as assistant professor in art history and museum studies at Long Island University Post.
