About the Book
Love and sex always weave in a cobweb of pleasure and pain. Exotic dreams remain in every heart, so long as human beings are still in existence on this earth. The art and poetry book Exotic Dreams is but a journey to deep psyche for an exploration of human interpersonal relationship.
Artist Natalie Holland is daring, colourfully bold, and expressive in her paintings of erotic human curves, forms, and their visual interaction. Poet Thao Chuong offers distinctive rhymes and melodic rhythms from his mystical Oriental poetic style. His romantic and nasty poems take readers to the top of a joy mountain then shove them off deep down into a hell of bitterness.
Paper collage artist Viet Tran/poet Thao Chuong
Victoria, British Columbia, Canada
Poet Thao Chuong is the pen name of collage artist Viet Tran who wrote poetry and published three books in his mother tongue. He loves poetic combination in rhymes and rhythms between the Japanese Haiku and Vietnamese poetry. He also composed poems in English in different styles and has three books published. In fine art, collage artist Viet Tran celebrates both chaos and orders through his painterly paper collages. As a “paper collage” purist, Tran does not apply oil, acrylic, or any other media on his works. Tran used collage as an art therapy during his two years in Galang Refugee Camp. Tran has settled in Victoria, B.C., Canada since 1987.
