Bright Quang is an interesting and inspiring man. Idiosyncratic and personal, his painting describes his response to his life and share with us a long, solitary view acquired in the midst of tragic world events of the past thirty years -war, displacement, and struggle. Bright's reply to all this is, rather than despair, hope. Bright's work, and his character, celebrates what it means to be alive in difficult times. Professor Dickson Schneider California State University Hayward http: //
