【Today Culture Salon】Trash Transformation = Forest Conservation

Deforestation becomes one of the environmental issues in the 21st century that contributing to global climate change.  Forests are important to the carbon and water cycles that sustain life on earth, and they are being cut down for many reasons; logging operations which provide the world’s wood and paper products is one of them.  
As an environmentalist first and foremost, Nghi’s artwork is simply the product of her deeper passion and commitment toward a sustainable living with the environment.  Nghi wants to express her compassion for our green planet through vibrant and colorful art works using discarded magazines, cardboard and food packaging that she collected over the years as materials; she wants to paint with paper.  Utilizing her architectural skills, Nghi creates unique form of three dimensional arts out of cardboard and food packaging boxes, and she paints them over with colorful and textural cut out images derived from magazines; thousands of incongruent pieces are assembled like mosaic to create an entirely new composition.
Nghi wants to reclaim, transform, and give new life to ordinary paper materials that we tend to over use, overlook, and dispose once they have been used.  She hopes her work will serve as a bridge, connecting with audiences to generate a dialog that will raise awareness and inspire and motivate individuals to live greener.
