Lan Nguyen-hoan

“I am an artist and storyteller. My recent work explores fictional places – landscapes of the soul and mind. The intention is to draw the viewer into a space of their own imagination, stimulated by the creative outcomes of my practice. This encompasses multiple visual art disciplines as well as creative writing.

The pieces presented here at GOST are excerpts of implied narratives, allowing the wearer or viewer to make up their own personal stories as a way of connecting with the work.”

Principally trained in gold and silversmithing, Lan often works with metals and has a tendency to explore the way in which a hammer and anvil can manipulate her material of choice. She is also partial to drawing, printmaking, animation, and photography as creative techniques that aid the expression of concepts that go beyond the language of words.
