Continental Train Wave is a 3D digital still that captures the spirit of the Chinese railroad workers who built the Transcontinental Railroad. You can almost hear the sound of the chugging engine and smell the smoke rising from the steam train in Nina’s vivid imagery. The artwork is 8″x11″ and unframed.

The winning bidder will also get a chance to meet Nina Kuo in-person or virtually at a mutually agreed-upon time.

Shop Till You Drop captures the spirit of the bargain hunter in all of us. A confident but tired shopper walks off with her sale items with a child on her back and a sense of satisfaction as she walks away with her conquest. The artwork is 8″x11″ and unframed.

The winning bidder will also get a chance to meet Nina Kuo in-person or virtually at a mutually agreed-upon time.

Kuo presents an illusionary world of multi-faceted personalities with new idioms of refuge that memorialize our expressive dreams and channel sensual, ritualistic expressions that free us from stereotypes.

Nina moves the crowd with invented spiritual, cultural or mental icons of our Persona. It is a positive to combat the AAPI issues that affect us with expressive messages. For AsAmNews, Nina Kuo creates artworks with fictional and historical references in an individual modern language. She works in photographs , multi-media and has been branching out into installations. Permanent collections: Brooklyn Museum, MoMA, Biblioteque Nationale, Lib. Of Congress etc. Commissioned photo/art by Renee Tajima, Chris Choy, Jeff Yang, Brooklyn Hist. Soc. etc. (Group show at MoMA, 2022-2023).

Both items were generously donated by Kuo.

Bidding is open until 8:30 PM Pacific Time on February 26, 2023.
