Exhibition Statement:

Brujita Daydream exhibiting at the Fort Worth Community Arts Center features a range of ceramics, paintings, and installation work in which artist Mylan Nguyen explores her interest in curanderx practices, mysticism, and self made healing rituals through the lens of her Mexican/Vietnamese American upbringing. Inspired by the Mexican tradition of Curanderx (traditional natural healers) that perform cleansing rituals called limpias for purification in order to clear and make way for transformation, renewal, and rebirth this work is intended to bring moments of healing, introspection, joy, and connection to nature.
