Book: Nguyen Lam – Lacquer Painting

“Painting is a process of forming and destroying. The creation does not allow the artist to repeat himself. That is an itinerary which is always renewed with the addiction and desire for beauty, and that makes sense only when we are working. Sometimes, we think that we are coming to the aim, but it is really a tiny objective in the great and far – away beauty.” Nguyen Lam.
