Current MFA student Mary Chong, has a solo exhibit as Sojourn Gallery in Louisville, Kentucky with the title “His Nature.” In this show, Mary Chong creates large, abstract collages to reflect an exploration of God’s stature in relation to human existence. The exhibit is on view from January 18th until February 22, 2015.
Mary Chong uses mixed media in her work, such as old drawings, brown paper bags, and other found objects. She makes strong color choices, and her use of shape is very important, as well as her process of addition and subtraction of materials. Chong states: “Through the layering of materials, I am constantly exploring new ways to express light, space, volume, and density.”
Mary Chong’s goal is to arouse question such as: Where have we come from? Where are we going?, in order to let the audience recognize that there is a higher being.
