Ling Chun, a Hong Kong–born sculptor who’s been living in the United States since the age of 17, is now based in Helena, Montana, where she creates wildly colorful, semi-amorphous ceramics incorporating fake hair, paint, metal, resin, and wood. Her works radiate a childlike adventurousness and a seeming heedlessness of conventional tastes, despite their appeal. Ashley Norwood Cooper, based in Cooperstown, New York, produces imaginative, expressionistic domestic and woodland oil paintings on panel. Though the two artists work in very different mediums, they share a love of busyness, an apparent desire to fill every space with color and pattern.
