In The Darkest Hours
Bronze in Nature/Trees
What is outside is no longer outside. Trees, forests, mountains, rivers, lakes. Michael Nguyen has transformed these elements in his artworks into feelings, fantasies and dreams. They become part of our inner nature, part of the human soul. His works does not reflect reality but are the interpretation of a moment. In his art photography, the work is often created by making changes to the original photograph in image editing programs, where the creativity of the artist knows no bounds. His pictures are paintings that lead us into our secret dreams - Nature is within us.
Everywhere I go, my eyes and senses are in motion. With my camera I capture little things that we often don't notice in everyday life. I like to observe people and photograph them in everyday situations. But my real artistic work begins afterwards. The pictures are digitally processed and go through different stages until I have reached the mood, the sound, the effect, the emotion and the meaning I want to express. Then the photo becomes a "painting" in which I show the real world of myself with all its beauty and horror. That is why I do not consider myself a photographer, but a photoartist.
