Mong-Lan once again brings us her tango art, full of sensuality, vigor and loveliness. Based in Buenos Aires, Mong-Lan shares with us her tango vision, a world of lines, flowing bodies in motion. A world of great heart, a blossoming love, and a vision all her own. Reminiscent of Picasso, Matisse, and the great artists of this century, Mong-Lan's pen and inks on paper are like performance pieces on the page, a moment captured. Floating, yet grounded in a ferocity of the mind along with Mong-Lan's impeccable technique of the hand and eye, the dancers tango in a centrifugal force of the heart. Prize-winning poet, visual artist, Argentine tango dancer and educator, Mong-Lan took her MFA at the University of Arizona. Among her honors include a Fulbright Fellowship in Vietnam and a two-year Stegner Fellowship at Stanford University. Her artwork has been exhibited in the U.S. Capitol House, galleries in the U.S., the Dallas Museum of Art, and in public exhibitions in Buenos Aires, Tokyo, Seoul, Bali and Bangkok.
