Huong Nguyen (Mind in Motion)

Huong Nguyen
Mind-in-Motion, June 2010
acrylic on canvas
30 x 36"

Huong Nguyen a local artist and is relatively new to the Edmonton art scene.  Her unique semi abstract style provides much feast for the eyes.  Her use of color and multiple layers of opacity make her paintings come alive with motion and mystery.  As a self taught artist, she was selected as feature artist at the Spruce Grove Art Gallery and had her 1st gallery show in January 2011.  She has a keen feel for acrylic, playing with transparent strokes with more translucent and opaque ones that are well executed to capture her theme of water reflecting color and light.
