Vietnamese Contemporary Fine Art Group Show in Brussels Belgium

The Vietnamese contemporary fine art exhibition, on display from 5 – 9 February at Tour et Taxis exhibition hall, Brussels, will feature works on paper and wood, in lacquer and watercolor, by contemporary Vietnamese artists all living and working in Hanoi.

Exhibition: 05 – 09 Feb 2015, 11 am – 6 pm

Tour et Taxis exhibition hall, Brussels, Belgium

Exhibiting artists: Dinh Thi Tham Poong, Phan Cam Thuong, Vu Thu Hien, Trinh Tuan, Dinh Hanh, Vu Duc Trung, Ninh Thi Den.

The oldest, Phung Pham, is 80 years of age and the youngest, Vu Duc Trung, is 33. Trinh Tuan, considered a master teacher as well as artist, is the third male lacquer artist in the show. Dinh Hanh has, over the past decade, achieved renown for his graceful and minimalist lacquer paintings of women.

The two women watercolor artists in the exhibition, Vu Thu Hien and Dinh Thi Tham Poong, are both 44 years of age and were in the same graduating class of the Fine Arts Academy in Hanoi, and work in watercolour on handmade paper. Ninh Thi Den works in collage and Phan Cam Thuong in mineral colors on handmade paper.

The juxtaposition of handmade do paper and traditional lacquer painting with contemporary artistic techniques bridges the temporal worlds of past and present, and spans the cultural divide of East and West. Stylistic elements of Impressionism, Expressionism, figurative art, Cubism and Fauvism intermingle with purely traditional Vietnamese themes of emotional experience and spiritual values as represented by the village, the buffalo, ancient dances.
