Opening - Christine Nguyen @ 10 Chancery Lane Gallery in HK
10 Chancery Lane Gallery of Hong Kong will showcase works by the young Vietnamese American artist Christine Nguyen from Feb 7 – Apr 7. Her intriguing photogram murals use a cameraless process of photography, combining drawing and photographic processes. She first draws on layers of Mylar, which are then projected onto light-sensitive paper, which is developed in a color processor, creating a camera-less, photographic image. In addition to watercolor and ink, she also uses materials such as saltwater, seaweed, coral, minerals, and crystals to manipulate the “negative” and the print. The total process is similar to that of making a photogram. The results look like strange, colorful underwater worlds. Beautiful..
