by La Huy

The inspiration for one of La Huy’s pieces was a pregnant woman running across the street. Not wishing to merely imitate reality, the artist created a still figure illuminated from the rounded core by a soft light in order to convey the vulnerability, fragility, and excitement he felt in that moment.
