saigon projects

2015-present

'Atomic Frog' is a lantern sculpture that was presented as a gift to a local Saigonese photographer; varnished paper is stretched over a frame of bamboo strips and wire.
 

'Ca nho' is a collage that was submitted to the Dogma Art Prize. The self portrait takes an Arte Povera approach on the traditional Vietnamese art of Lacquer painting. The image is made of discarded playing cards, beer cans, prayer money and brown paper bags sealed in varnish.
