Borrowing liberally from art history, Vietnamese painter Nguyen Xuan Huy (born 1976) manipulates a Pop aesthetic to confront the traumatic legacy of the Vietnam War, specifically the birth defects caused by Agent Orange. The bodies that compose his haunting figurative tableaux are distorted yet graceful, humiliated yet strong--apt metaphors for a nation still in recovery.
