Winnie Truong’s Mixed-Media Works Explore Femininity, Nature in ‘Perennials’

by Andy SmithPosted on

Winnie Truong‘s explorations of the female form and its relationship to nature evolve with a new show at VivianeArt. The collection of mixed-media works, implementing colored pencil, pastel, and collage, are displayed under the title “Perennials.” The show kicks off April 27 and runs through June 9. Truong was last featured on HiFructose.com here.

“Continuing an overarching interest in the distortion of beauty, Truong’s latest series specifically considers representation of the idealized female form in relation to nature,” a statement says. “Perennials captures women poised in settings of fantasy foliage and flora, merging with the plant-life itself. Featured throughout are her self-named “wimmin creatures”; mythical hybrid forms described as part-plant, part-woman. Drawing parallels between anatomy, botany, grooming and landscaping, each piece depicts a narrative inspired from nature, personal history and the broader female experience.”
