Little tiny pencil and crayon sculpture by Vietnam born American Diem Chau .
A Vietnam native, Diem Chau and her family came to America as refugees in 1986. Chau is a BFA graduate from Cornish
College of the Arts and has received an Artist Trust GAP Grant and a PONCHO Artist-in-Residence Award. Her work has been
exhibited in New York, Miami, Seattle and Los Angeles.
Chau combines common mediums and common means to create delicate vignettes of fleeting memory, gesture and form,
resulting in works that combine egalitarian sensibility and minimalist restraint. Her work touches on the value of Storytelling,
Myths and its ability to connect us to each other through cultural and humanistic similarities. Chau’s current work drifts into
new territory by exploring the periphery of the narrative, moments forgotten and faded, or too brief to retain.
