Abstract: It Doesn’t Have To Suck!

Viewing The World Through Hang Nguyen Eyes
Hang Nguyen, inspired by her full-time job as a science editor, creates abstract artworks. As I trolled an online art gallery looking for some interesting art to post (Yes, sometimes I just cruise galleries of random artists looking at their work. I’ll post anything I find striking, interesting or worthwhile. It’s my blog. I can do what I want.) her work really stuck out among some uninspiring work.

Here is here work, in her own words.

“For the last 10 years, I have been focusing on abstract paintings that contemplate the idea of one unit in the context of a greater whole. How does one being make a difference in a group? What is the dynamic of these discrete entities in a limited space? When these individual units come together, what do they create? Havoc? Harmony? Revolution? Stillness? Decay? Symbiosis?”

Her newest work has moved into Triptych’s, each panel measuring 48″ x 36″ x 12″. They are mixed media works composing of yarn, thread, fabric, plastic, wire, and even acorns. It didn’t move me the way her paintings did. But I’ll hold off judgement until I get to see them live in person.

So Hang Nguyen, for convincing me that abstract art doesn’t have to suck Give Us Art! salutes you! To see more of Nguyen’s work visit her website here Hang Nguyen!
