Forget Me Not, a show featuring new work by Sean Chao and Ming Ong, will run from January 15th to February 2nd 2011. The opening reception will take place on Saturday, January 15th from 6:30PM to 10PM at GRSF in San Francisco.
Sean Chao sculpts, paints, and delicately constructs a world filled with curiosity and amusement, creatures and animals. The mixed-media pieces capture odd moments frozen in time that hint at narrative and create an imaginary history in which beings of all kinds explore the wonders of their environment together.
Ming Ong is an artist and graphic designer whose artwork reflects her international upbringing and inclusive worldview. Her paintings often depict children and animals in disquieting situations, juxtaposing bright colors and nostalgic children’s book illustration with dark subject matter and serious themes.
