About the Art
Christine Nguyen created three artworks for the Sheila Kuehl Family Wellness Center that provide a meditative and harmonious environment, celebrating spirit, healing and recovery. Inspired by the flora and fauna of San Fernando and the surrounding region, the works create a playful and inspirational imaginary world that gives a sense of wonder to clients, visitors and staff. Portal’s Eye is a colorful, acrylic geometric mobile sculpture is suspended from the ceiling near the lobby entrance. Various multicolor acrylic shapes are hung in layers and strung up to a frame. The design changes based on the viewer’s perspective and the colors are reflected into the waiting room when sunlight hits.
