Brian Doan Photography
of Sapa, Vietnam
By Nachmi Artzy
May 26 to July 30, 2005
On display are the latest artworks about the H'Mongs people of Vietnam:
lacquers, silks, oils and works on paper.
and tranquillity, tradition and modernity: Vietnam always surprises us, especially
through the eyes of its artists. Far from the clichés and the easy exoticism,
two artists, Nguyên Diêu Thuy and Vu Thang, paint the beauty of
yesterday's and today's Vietnam through universal themes: the woman, the animals,
the objects of daily life.
Nguyên Diêu Thuy, one of the Vietnamese leading women artists, shows
her most recent paintings, pure lines and shapes in oil on canvas, using the
knife technique. Bowls, women and birds make up her world in a rhythmic ballet,
in a luminous palette where she plays with colored whites and ochres, the gold
and silver leaf that is part of the tradition of refinement of the Vietnamese
Vu Thang, who lives in Sapa and Hanoi, endeavors to restitute the traditions
and the memory of the H'Mong and Dao ethnic minorities he knows well for having
shared their daily life in the Northern Mountains. He favors watercolor and
ink on Do paper.
An exhibition not to miss for Art lovers interested in Vietnam and its culture
Galerie Hoa Mai invites you to view this exhibition.
