Investigations span a range of two-dimensional imagery to time-based projective overlays in order to interrogate topics beyond dimension.

Born and raised in South Vietnam, Nguyen and his family moved to the United States in 2010. Nguyen's work is influenced by both his Vietnamese culture and the experience of immigrating to America; this can be seen prominently in his work with silk. His silk piecesSilk painting is a common practice in Vietnamese culture; ...
