(No.5, Vol.8,Oct-Nov Vietnam Heritage Magazine)


Vanishing Landscapes
From 10 October to 20 October

‘From Villages to Streets’, an exhibition by Vu Dinh Luong, presents 36 works, including 18 watercolor paintings, nine lacquer artworks, and nine oil and acrylic paintings from 10 October to 20 October at the Fine-Arts Exhibition House, 16 Ngo Quyen St, Hoan Kiem Dist., Hanoi.
Each of his paintings is a small story of a sudden feeling, of familiar sceneries. The villages and city streets that he portrays are from all over the country, from North to South. He paints familiar scenes, such as empty rice fields, old residential buildings, with the thought that one day these will no longer exist – urbanization will take over the vast fields, up from the ground buildings and factories will be built. Old mansions turned residential buildings will one day be confiscated then rebuilt. The artist wants to capture the images of the early 21st century with all its changes, with the old and the new co-existing in village and city life.

Master of the art of reduction
Till 19 October
Unsent Letters’, an exhibition by Le Thua Tien, is running at the Art Vietnam Salon Gallery till 19 October.
Le Thua Tien, in his new series of Unsent Letters, presents yet another body of work that engages the viewer into a deep contemplation of one’s silent interior world.
Words scribbled in charcoal, washed away by vanishing pigment, sand and ink, submerged in earth, echo whisperings longing to be heard.
