About the Artist

Hines College of Architecture. His experience in designing for the built environment has had a profound influence on his artwork.Maria is a ceramics artist, specializing in pieces that are - at once - functional and sculptural. Her 13 years of experience as an Interior Designer has shaped her deep understanding of surface materials and textures, which has informed her ceramics practice on both a tactile and philosophical level.

Artist Statement

Although Maria Nguyen and Preetal Shah work independently, their mutual influences are palpable. They not only live together but also share a single studio. Their art is as intertwined as their lives.Maria Nguyen’s work consists of elegant jewelry and household objects in all shapes and sizes. It reflects a meditative practice and diverse influences: Japanese aesthetics and geometric patterns of contemporary artists such as Agnes Martin. Preetal Shah’s paintings of geometric shapes and people blur the lines between figurative and abstract art. The recognizable, distorted perspectives in his drawings and paintings testify to influences from areas of art history as distinct as cubism, pop art, and artists such as Francis Bacon.
