Kenny Nguyen | Interwoven


Join us on Friday, January 11 from 6-8 p.m. for the opening of Charlotte-based mixed media artist Kenny Nguyen's "Interwoven." This marks Nguyen's second solo exhibit with Sozo Gallery and our first exhibit of 2019.

Exhibition Statement
'Interwoven' is a collection of my recent body of work which includes paintings, wall sculptures, and installations made from silk. There is an idea of knitting all of my works together – an exploration of cultural identity and integration. I found the inspiration from silk, a culturally-rich material that has become a narrative medium and metaphor for my personal identity. Immigrated from Vietnam and influenced by Vietnamese cultural heritage and fashion design, my artwork was often constructed by balancing these factors. The shifting perception gave me a different perspective about the material and I believe it can transform and create a cultural experience for the viewer. - Kenny Nguyen
