With the mix of varied materials (oil-color, powder color, acrylic…), each artist has his/her own way to express the respective “portrait”.
Building the portrait paintings via pottery pieces carved around composit frame, artist Le Thiet Cuong wants to highlight the multi-face, complexity inside everyone. Meanwhile, painter Tao Linh brings his character in the static conservation of color and shape.
For artist Phuong Binh’s part, via her work, she wants to praise the body curves of women; at the same time, shape and build their complex, disturbed and instable mind.
“However, we meet each other at the same thinking: the portrait must draw out the characters’ nature and spirit. The portrating isn’t merely about paint meticulously, specifically to reappear the characters’ look”, representative of G39 Hanoi said.
After the program in Hanoi, exhibition of sculpture painting “Portrait” will continue to roll to Hoi An in Dec 19.
