"Soft Suits II was painted after Menagerie II, and was made with the desire to paint something looser and softer in contrast. Similarly, Soft Suits depicts a multitude of bodies melting and becoming one with the scenery. This one in particular also shows many iterations of the swan-human hybrid. Its slow progressive transformation of swan to human (or human to swan, depending on how one chooses to interpret it) shows the creature in a various parts of its life cycle." 

Nguyen's illustrative paintings employ a variety of techniques using oil paint and pastel on a canvas surface. Rife with narrative symbols, her dramatic tableaus sing with chaotic tension and humorous undertones. Painted in jewel tones and highlighted by soft-hued pastels, starkly contrasted by bold gestural markings, Nguyen's works are ready to hang framed or unframed.
