Trinh Sari Nguyen is a Houston-based artist. She recently graduated with a Bachelor Degree of Fine Arts with a painting concentration at the University of Houston. She has exhibited her works in Houston, Dallas, and Las Vegas. As an artist, Trinh’s intention is to redefine “The Me” within herself using unspoken secrets of feelings. Her sources come from direct observation of lone objects related to the unspoken feelings. For her most recent body of work, “Soft Spoken,” Trinh applies acrylic on top of soft white fabric for visual softness and to emphasize emotional sensitivity. Trinh challenges viewers’ curiosity with an element of mystery leading them into an intimate conversation with the paintings.
