Nativity, Graphite on Paper by Sammy Chong
The 3rd Annual Milton Art Museum Juried Competition Winner, Sammy Chong was featured in a Solo Exhibition titled Asterion. September 15 – October 15. The Asterion series included eleven astutely detailed graphite drawings focused on a central figure placed into common everyday scenes, who embodies the ugliness of isolation, unacceptence, and mistrust.
Sammy Chong is an interdisciplinary artist who resides in Brighton, and practices in drawing, painting, and installation. He has an academic background in philosophy and theology, and obtained his MFA in Studio Art from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts (2012). He is a Visiting Professor in the Fine Arts Department at Boston College, and maintains a studio in Jamaica Plain.
