Creativity Explored

Marilyn Wong

Though abstract in appearance, Marilyn Wong’s (b. 1949, Pennsylvania) works reference a diverse range of source materials ranging from the McDonald’s Hamburglar to Prince; pizza to 60’s surf flicks; Chinese paintings to an aerial photo of her hometown, Allenstown, PA. Across her practice, whether working on paper or on her epic large-scale canvasses, her line is confident and gestural while simultaneously following a specific system of construction.  

Wong joined the Creativity Explored studio in 1985.
