About the Work

Loc Huynh is a storyteller as much as a painter, using the forms and materiality of paint to craft visual narratives that reflect his upbringing in a Vietnamese-American household. Rendered in bold color with an inclination towards graphic shapes and textural pattern, Huynh’s work vibrates with authentic warmth towards coming-of-age moments — the memories that stick, the comfort created by feeling empowered to claim someone or something as home. Cooking plays a significant role in many of his works, cleverly tapping into our mental olfactory responses, stimulating fully embodied sensory experiences of intimate domestic moments. Simultaneously deeply personal and universal, Huynh is demonstrating mastery of communicating complexity within deceptively minimal composition. In our collaboration, Holy Mackerel!, we were inspired by Huynh’s surprise moments of texture, creating tactility within the otherwise flattened 2D plane. Echoing his larger practice, Huynh’s new print edition features surface variation like embossed pattern details and silver foil.

Authentication & Resale

This work is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity signed and numbered by Exhibition A.

Be sure to keep your Certificate of Authenticity (COA) in a safe place. We are unable to replace or reissue COAs.


Framed artwork is custom framed once it is ordered. Allow 3-5 weeks for framing and delivery.

All of our frames are made from sustainably sourced engineered hardwood that is manufactured in the USA. Frames are available in Black or White Matte and Walnut.

Prints are hinged to a conservation quality, acid-free and lignin-free Cellulose matboard, using acid-free polyethylene cloth tape. Each mat’s surface paper is fade and bleed resistant and is attached to a conversation quality foam-core board. Some of our work (typically those pieces with a deckled edge) is floated on the matboard with spacers to separate the artwork from the glazing.

We use museum quality .060 mm plexiglass to frame your work. It blocks 82-85% of UV rays to prevent color fading from exposure to light, protecting your art for years to come.

Our White and Black frames have a ⅞” wide flat face and are 15/16” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.

Our Natural and Walnut frames have a ¾” wide flat face and are 1 ⅛” deep. Mats are 1” wide for prints up to 8” x 10”. Mats are 2” wide for prints larger than 8” x 10”.

Any artwork that is floated will be placed in a frame that has a ⅝” wide flat face and is 1 5/16” deep. Work will be floated with a 1” border around it.
