Chronology

Cong Kim Hoa was born in Hanoi in 1962 and graduated from the Hanoi Industrial College of Fine Art in 1985. She is one of the few female artists who made lacquer painting their medium. Hoa specialises in semi-abstract and abstract paintings, however one can often recognize the contours of masks, faces, fish or lotus flowers in her work. Her work may be viewed as an abstract take on depicting the various elements making up traditional Vietnam.

The present monograph illustrates works by the artist spanning the years 1994 to 2006, a period over which a distinct evolution from figural works toward abstraction can be observed. It also includes an essay by artist Trinh Tuan on the art of Vietnamese lacquer.

The book has been specially printed using five colour technology, which enables the accurate portrayal the artists lacquer works, employing metallic gold leaf.
