Hop Dac

Nomadic Reverie, 2022

36 × 46 cm
I am drawn to scenes in domestic settings and intimate public spaces and look for how objects can be expressed to share an experience or sense of cultural connection. I belong to the Viet diaspora and the concerns, conflicts and opportunities of walking two worlds informs much of my work living in Australia.
