This event has ended.

Twenty years of Doodads included a collection with over 200 items from the studio, covering drawings, photos, studies, specimens, models and sculptural installations in the nature of a studio setting. The timing of this period represent a body of works that relate to the late 20th and early 21st century history, with personal events during this period of time.

Ming Fay is drawn to the notion of cultures, the act of crossing from one another, and calling attention to the changing times and his work evolving with the changes turning in a revolution of two decades. The works in this show relates to his studio mind where his bi-cultural brain had cooked up this mix bag of experimental goodies. These are works evolved from the early day singular pieces to the later garden installations and the more recent jungle presentations, with the new figurative works as a singular soul in the cultural jungle, striving for allusive balance in the third culture.

Ming Fay was born in Shanghai, China and received his B.F.A from the Kansas City Art Institute and his M.F.A. from the University of California, Santa Barbara.
