Artist Cuong Nguyen

iPhone Video-Review of current Exhibits at TRITON. ART RULES BABY!. The interior is immaculate. Particular attention has been paid to the details… paint applied a little more carefully on the walls, taped floor to indicate “stay back from the works”, very clean and inviting. All the sunlight streaming in from the glass, rear walls helps tremendously. Lighting has always been quite good here, both Track Lighting and the Sunlight. Three large rooms house rotating exhibits, adjacent to connecting main floors, and a couple of hall areas. More works hang from a few modern columns that slice through, adding to the great “loft” atmosphere. Be sure to check out the lovely well-kept gardens at the rear … many interesting sculptures and other pieces… as well as some Historical buildings and a cute little outside amphitheater for staging plays and whatnot.

Complaints? Not really. Interesting prints and guidebooks are available from current and past exhibitions…(Some VERY inexpensive). I do wish there was more funding to provide an overall Exhibition book. I picked up Mr. Nguyen’s lavishly illustrated book for $20.00, worth EVERY PENNY. HEY! In this day and age of digital publishing through Apple, Amazon CreateSpace, and Lulu… surely a color volume containing reproductions and background info from the Artists is possible? Regardless, there are separate publications and prints available in the shop. Kudos to the Corporate sponsors overall. Triton has a very knowledgeable staff, led by Preston Metcalf … makes the whole experience come together.

This video sampler shows off some art from two of the three exhibits. Apologies to Maxine Solomon, her exhibit did not make it into the four minute film. Her paintings actually quite surprised me… I can see faces also in those landscapes of the mind. Abstract “Turner-isms”, with touches of Surrealism…. Her exhibit is titled “From Void to A Dream”. Also: apologies, this video was shot/edited on IPHONE, so its not up to Kngsway’s usual standards.(** A couple, three works by Cuong Nguyen shown in this video, are not from this particular exhibit).

I came here to see more work by one of the most fantastic artists… Cuong Nguyen. I only wish he had shown more works of that female model with such an interesting demur face, obstinance? and other expressions. She and He – (his fav male model) were a great segway into Adam & Eve and the rest of the “Splintering Humanity” exhibit, showcasing nine artists. This one moved, shocked, PROVOKED, and delighted me … If you want to identify each of the 9 artists, well, too bad, I left their names out of the video here… GO TO THE EXHIBITION!

****Going to a great Art Museum like this once a month RE-ENERGIZES YOU…. INSPIRES YOU… MAKES YOU THINK….. I LOVE IT WHEN OTHER ARTISTS CAN PUSH ME OUT OF MY “CENTER” AND PROVOKE ME…..
