In French, ‘LesEnchanteresses’ means ‘enchanting women with joyful spirit’. Through theportraits, we can easily feel Hoang’s love for Vietnamese folk culture and forthe beauty of women. Hoang paints single and group portraits of the many kindsof people that make up Vietnam’s multi-layered society.

Ngo Duc Hoang is a talented and creative painter who hasorganized many successful group and private exhibitions in Hanoi and Ho ChiMinh City as well as Singapore, Korea and New York City. Hoang brings elementsof the ancient Hang Trong and Dong Ho woodcut painting techniques into his ownpractice - the influence is plain in the way he streamlines compositions,flattens depth, and emphasizes impossibly bright colors. The figures themselves,standing out in color blocks, are full of life in their stunning costumes andenjoying the festive springtime.

“The Destination Point of an Oblique Line”

Opening from Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.

Artist Dinh Thi Tham Poong holds an exhibition entitled ‘TheDestination Point of an Oblique Line’ at Vietnam Art Gallery from until 26March. One could say all of life is the intersection of oblique lines oroccurrences. As we go throughout life, our point of view shifts, like the worldon its axis, poised between just one aberrant movement that couldsend all into total chaos.

In this artist’s view, life is orderly. Tham Poong‘schildhood began in nature in close alignment with the seasons and the phases ofthe moon. Life was simple and free to morph and align with the shifts innature. This natural spirit resides in the artist to this day and has alwaysbeen reflected in her art. After graduating from the Vietnam Fine ArtsUniversity in Hanoi in 1993, Tham Poong quickly established herself as one ofVietnam’s leading female artists. Art Vietnam Gallery, tel : ( 04) 3928 5190
