The Artistry of Amy Nguyen

Threads #202, Apr./May 2019
Article Image

Finding balance between opposing forces is the focus of textile artist Amy Nguyen. Her garments are thoughtful, elegant, and soft, yet they’re bold, purposeful, and precise. Drawing inspiration from diverse sources such as the New England seaside landscape and Japanese aesthetics, Amy creates extraordinary one-of-a-kind, limited edition, and custom wearable art garments and collections (see AmyNguyenTextiles.com) from her studio just steps from Boston’s harbor front. Her work is at once steeped in tradition, with a focus on ancient dyeing techniques, yet thoroughly modern in her fabric manipulations and artistic vision. Threads spoke with Amy to find out how she has evolved as an artist and what inspires her. Amy shares her creative process and explains a technique used in her most recent collection, Kintsugi.
