Floating Above the Buildings

We are returning to the finely detailed and subtly surreal art of the Vietnamese-born, US-based Tran Nguyen. You can see our earlier post of her work here. Her new set of paintings depict delicate young women resting on top of old buildings, sleeping or sometimes posing in the middle of the street as giant figures. They are mesmerising and possess an enigmatic quality that is truly fascinating. The pale colours and soft brushstrokes heighten this mood.
