Ming Fay's works have been praised by such publications as The New York Times, Artweek, Art in America, Arts Magazine, and The South China Morning Post.
"One reason the objects are so effective is Mr. Ming's powerfully sculptural feeling for shape and scale which makes the objects seem normal and almost inevitable despite their overblown size. Another reason is his humor. His cherry sits in a corner like a naughty child, his fat buttocksy plums belong in a bawdy ballad. Mr. Ming's sculptures are distant relatives of the giant fruits of Claes Oldenburg, the giant shells of Tony Cragg and the organic figural abstractions of Robert Therrien."
