The use of collected, discarded and found objects in this show is an allegory to the forgotten groups of people in our society that have been marginalized and cast aside. Many of the materials used in this series were either donated or recycled. Tina Nguyen, pays tribute to the people and chance encounters that have shaped her life. The artist explores 3 dimensional art, allowing forms, shapes and textures to dictate the development of the artwork. The final product is a spotlight on the true value of the rejected, unwanted pieces and the potential that can be produced, similarly as well, when people from all stations in life and ethnicities come together to appreciate and respect one another.
