Wade Kavanaugh / Stephen B. Nguyen

Using wood and paper, Brooklyn-based long time collaborators Wade Kavanaugh and Stephen B. Nguyen create large-scale installations that often resemble trees and forests, or suggest internal organs and viscera, filling entire rooms with the twisted and crushed materials.  

Both based in Brooklyn, NY, they have collaborated since 2005. Their collaborative process gives them a platform to articulate the collective processing of what they see and to continually re-question visual foundations such as memory, perception and imagination.

The process of questioning at the root of their collaboration has encouraged experimentation and play that might otherwise not exist in their individual artistic practices. Recently the two artists installed this site-specific paper sculpture ‘Sun Valley’ in The Center’s gallery in Ketchum.
