Christine Nguyen's works on paper are influenced by the artist's memories, landscape imagery, and imagined visions. She combines a variety of media and photographic processes, creating multilayered forms that move freely from representation to abstraction. Natural elements like trees and rivers and whimsical animals share space with fanciful boats and villages, all of which seem to exist in a universe with its own secret logic and energy. Christine Nguyen was born in 1977 in Mountain View, California, and currently lives in Glendale. She received a BFA in photography from California State University, Long Beach, in 1999, and an MFA from the University of California, Irvine, in 2004. Her work has been the focus of several recent and planned solo exhibitions, including those at 4-F Gallery and Gallery 825 in Los Angeles; Enview Gallery in Long Beach; and the Angels Gate Cultural Center in San Pedro, California. Her works on paper have also been exhibited in group shows at AndrewShire Gallery, Los Angeles; Mixture Contemporary Art, Houston; the Laguna Art Museum, Laguna Beach, California; and the Society for Contemporary Photography, Kansas City. This is Nguyen's first solo museum exhibition.
