My ceramic vessels are made by hand, assembled with slabs, blended coils and layered slips. I try to imbue the exterior of my pieces with the aesthetic of being weather-worn and ancient. The markings on each vessel are not derived from any particular period in time but nevertheless, to most, they seem very familiar. The small dark opening represents a portal that draws you into the darkness and allows the viewer to imagine for themselves the story contained in these vessels.

SAC - L+D - Chinh Nguyen
Chinh Nguyen: Beyond the Ordinary

February 7 to 26, 2017
Meet the artist event: February 12, 2017 - 1 pm to 3 pm

I believe that pausing to appreciate the beauty in ordinary things creates joy and healing in our lives. Flowers, leaves, fruit, feathers — we are surrounded by astonishing beauty and richness! My camera allows me to reveal how intricate simple things are, and how they reveal the play of light, colour, and texture. Watercolours, with their luminous colour and transparency, let me pay loving attention to that beauty. As you can see in both my paintings and my photographs, it’s the little things in life that inspire me.
