Born in Vietnam and immigrated to the U.S. as a teenager, Yeu Q Nguyen was trained in figurative drawing before her transition into 3D work. A multidisciplinary artist, she often employs lighting design, optical science, and fine craft-making to explore the themes of infinity and inward reflection in her sculptures. Q has an academic literary background; her writing has been published and exhibited in journals such as New Forum and Inlandia Institute.
Since 2016, Q has been collecting #metoo stories for her public art project ThisWomanLife. Most recently, her work was on view at the Southwest Museum in Mt. Washington. Her infinity mirror sculptural installation is currently on view at the Laemmle Theatre 5 in Claremont.
