Ming Ying Hong

Associate Professor

Ming Ying Hong is an interdisciplinary artist whose work explores hybridized bodies, examining the way we define, categorize and assign power to them. Recognizable forms are fragmented, defamiliarized and remixed to create an uncanny hodgepodge of forms that were previously magnetically opposed to one another. She has exhibited at Western Illinois University in Macomb; the University of Alabama Huntsville; Florida’s Broward College South Campus in Pembroke; the University of South Carolina in Columbia, Doane University in Crete, NE; popblossom in Norfolk, VA; and the Green Building Gallery in Louisville, KY. Her work has been published in numerous publications, including New American Paintings, Manifest’s International Drawing Annual and ArtMaze Mag. Hong is dedicated to ensuring that her students are technically well versed, conceptually adept and civic-minded. She received her BFA from the University of Kentucky and was a Danforth Scholar at Washington University in St. Louis, where she received her MFA in visual art. She is represented by B. Deemer Gallery-Wheelhouse Art in Louisville, KY.

SECTION DESCRIPTION

Studio: Drawing is pursued in two directions: as a powerful way to investigate the world, and as an essential activity intrinsic to all artists and designers. As a primary mode of inquiry, drawing is a central means of forming questions and creating knowledge across disciplines. Through wide-ranging drawing approaches, students are prompted to work responsively and self-critically to embrace the unpredictable intersection of process, idea and media. To pursue these larger ideas, the studio becomes a laboratory of varied and challenging activities. Instructors introduce drawing as a dynamic two-dimensional record of sensory search, conceptual thought, or physical action. Students investigate materiality, imagined situations, idea generation, and the translation of the observable world. Formal and intellectual risks are encouraged during a sustained engagement with the possibilities of material, mark-making, perception, abstraction, performance, space and time. As students trust the drawing process, they become more informed about its uncharted potentials, and accept struggle as necessary and positive; they gain confidence in their own sensibilities.

Enrollment is limited to first-year Undergraduate Students.
