French-Vietnamese artist Florian Nguyen revisits the age-old artistic pursuit of capturing light on paper (chiaroscuro)—a move inspired by ironically, the constant glare of digital screens.
Florian’s choice of technique and medium forces us to be confronted with the sheer immensity and scale of detail, and the human effort and time that has gone into producing it—which in return makes apparent an irony within. Florian takes weeks, sometimes months to finish one work – a complete shift from the instantaneousness of digital consumption and production. His style of almost automated repetition—producing dots, lines and circles—calls to mind ironically the pixels of a digital screen.
