Join Vin Gallery for the Vernissage of Thổ Cẩm II by artist Đoàn Xuân Tặng on 4 March from 6-8pm.

Đoàn Xuân Tặng’s paintings distill the romance and mystery of Vietnam’s mountainous region and its people. The streaked lines look like veils through which eyes peer dispassionately, recalling his rain-lashed first visit.

“I particularly love to paint the eyes because they reflect the soul inside – happy, sad or suffering.”

He refuses to romanticise a region whose beauty belies hardships; the lines remind us that cultures can’t be consumed, and inevitably elude our true understanding. Physical appearance is just one facet of the complexity of the human condition.

“Beauty fades, but its impression is permanent.”

The exhibition will be open from 8.30am-5.30pm – Monday to Saturday – from 4-26 March.www.facebook.com/events/126299904420616| +84 (0) 907 729 846
