Michele Kong

Washington, DC
January 1 - March 29, 2005
Sculpture / Installation

Michele Kong uses her work as a means to share her unique visual sense of the world. She imparts a light touch to her work, which falls somewhere between sculpture and installation art. Kong uses industrial materials to suggest natural phenomenon such as snowflakes or water droplets. Notes Kong, who lives and works in Washington, DC: “The materials selected hold light and reflect it back out – in a musical and almost magical simplicity. Translucency, light, pattern and repetition suspend an ephemeral moment, captivating the viewer in the act of seeing and perceiving.” The artist has exhibited widely in a variety of art venues, including the Museo de Bellas Artes in Santiago, Chile, among others. She received her BFA in Studio Arts from the University of Colorado in Boulder and also studied in Florence, Italy. She earned her MFA in Sculpture from the Rhode Island School of Design in 2002. The artist has exhibited widely in a variety of art venues, including the Museo de Bellas Artes in Santiago, Chile, among others.
