August 28 – September 21 • Art Gallery

This body of work plays with the idea of art as an ongoing conversation with posterity in which artifacts of the past are painted over, yet traces of the original art remain — and using the cave-dweller as a metaphor for the fundamental human condition: forever shrouded in darkness and uncertainty, yet determined to leave our own visions upon the  walls of the cave. Nguyen explains, “We are story makers and shadow watchers.”
