an hoang’s memory of spaces…
Posted in artists May 18th, 2009 by piablog

An Hoang explores concepts of time, longing, and nostalgia in her paintings. She combines imagined and existing interiors in transparent layers, inviting the viewer to find familiarity.

The moment I began viewing An’s work I was captivated by the memory of my old Paris apartment: The beautiful empty shell of it as we walked out the door, ready to start our new lives in Amsterdam.

A painter living in New York City, An has her first solo exhibition titled the space between opening on June 7, right here in The Netherlands, at the Livingstone Gallery, in The Hague.

The exhibition runs from June 7 – July 26. For more details visit the Livingstone Gallery by clicking here.

And to see more of An’s work you can visit her website here, and read her artist’s statement here. Thank you for letting me share your beautful work here in the (blog)house dear An! I hope to see you at your exhibition opening.

    i was gonna say wow ‘whoa!’
    i found this really emotive. i’ve lived in lots of different houses over the years, and it’s strange how the memories of them get all tangled sometimes to create these new spaces

    These are breathtaking and meditative. I feel like the spaces are made of smoke and haze rather than substantial materials. Thanks for sharing.

    The paintings are filled with melancholy and mystery. I just love the light and shadows, the colors and the depth.
