Press Release

Joseph Bellows Gallery is pleased to announce its upcoming solo exhibition, Han Nguyen:Nude Compositions.  The exhibition will open on May 02, 2019 and continue through June 14, 2019.  

The exhibition will present a selection of Nguyen’s small-scale black and white photographs, which are comprised of varying layers of imagery that present the nude figure within a field of relating forms and tones, while referencing art history.  Included in the exhibition will also be a large-scale color piece from the series.

Nguyen’s delicate and transformative imagery investigates beauty, perception, and the medium itself through modest working methods that employ pinhole cameras, fabricated studio arrangements, collage, photogram image-making processes, and subtle color toning and print masking procedures.

His photographs have been celebrated with exhibitions at the Museum of Photographic Arts, The George Eastman Museum, the San Diego Central Library, and several solo and numerous group exhibitions at Joseph Bellows Gallery. Nguyen’s work was included in the traveling exhibitions Picturing Eden and Beyond Boundaries: Contemporary Photography in California, both with an accompanying catalog.  His work is in the collections of the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery, Spencer Museum of Art, and the Museum of Photographic Arts.
