Vu Thanh Nghi

“Back to”

The artworks exhibition “Back to” by the artist Vu Thanh Nghi, sponsored and organized by Mme Nguyen Nga, includes 10 recently painted artworks dealing with the question “Falling into trance”. If “Falling into trance” is an usual and traditionnal concept for Vietnamese people, it’s very new in fine-arts.

Vu Thanh Nghi was born and grown up in the Tonkin, Vietnam Northern Delta, where traditional culture is omnipresent, alive, especially trances which haunted and controled the astist’s mind by the spirits’ colors, musics and dances. Nghi feels the meaning of every characters’ soul and uses painting to express his own perception, his own trance.
As in the futurism and cubism mouvements, Vu Thanh Nghi shows an entire action, from the beginning to the end, a whole trance. The lay-out of his pictures is always choosen carefully. Characters are made by a lot of small pieces creating an interity which makes sense, each one has is own color, cool or warm, is own specificity.
This artwork suggests many feelings, proposes many approaches, tradition and modernity especially by the sensation of metal, inox and plastic emanated by the paintings.
Discover the exhibition “Back to” and find the strangness and the magic in the daily life…
