David Ma is an Asian-American-born interdisciplinary artist, raised in New York and Virginia. He navigates the mediums of Ceramic sculptures, Painting, and Video Performances, as he searches under the clutter of mainstream American culture to look for the vibrant, often complicated portrayals of Asian representation in American culture, swept by misconceptions and surface-level privileges. He uses traditional eastern decorative motifs to contemporary westernized self-concepts to collage various beliefs into a cluster fuck of who he is and how he relates to society.
Nina Molloy is from Bangkok, Thailand. Her practice attends to her local surroundings and the peculiar things that gather in it. Working primarily in painting, she is interested in how the medium––existing as material and illusion––possesses its own historically and materially specific capacities to produce effects out-side and in-side of us. Her layered process involves structuring surface, volume, light and shadow, color and transparency, to mediate the space between tactility and transcendence, where matter meets mythology. Narrative, then, comes not only from imagery but from particular formal/sensuous qualities.
