Hammer Project: Christine Nguyen

August 16 - December 31, 2006 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.
RECEPTION: September 16, 2006 8pm-10pm
