Charlene Liu, whose work is featured in Portland2016, Disjecta’s fourth biennial exhibition, was born in Taiwan and raised in the American Midwest. Using printmaking, painting, and papermaking processes, Liu samples and juxtaposes cultural references and the natural environment in an attempt to reconcile matters of biography and place. Her work is at once deeply personal and formally beautiful. Liu, who received her MFA from Columbia University, is an Associate Professor in the Department of Art at the University of Oregon. She is represented by Elizabeth Leach Gallery in Portland. Her works are on exhibition through September 18 at Crow's Shadow Institute of the Arts and in the historic Rivoli Theater, in Pendleton, as part of Portland2016.

Wendy Red Star (Absálooke) was raised on the Crow reservation in Montana. Her work is informed both by her cultural heritage and her engagement with many forms of creative expression, including photography, sculpture, video, fiber arts, and performance. Intergenerational collaborative work is integral to her practice, along with creating a forum for the expression of Native women’s voices in contemporary art. Red Star’s work can currently be seen at the Portland Art Museum, as part of Native Fashion Now, and at Hap Gallery, Portland, where she has a solo exhibition. She is a recent recipient of the Ford Family Foundation’s Fellowship in the Visual Arts, and is a Joan Mitchell Foundation Emerging Artist Grant Program Fellow. Red Star received her MFA in Sculpture from UCLA. Her work was included in Disjecta’s Portland2012 biennial.
