From the organizer:
“Worlds of Paper and Wood”, a NYC Preview of Asian Art London, features a group show exhibition of contemporary Vietnamese fine art curated by Raquelle Azran. The exhibition will display the works of Dinh Thi Tham Poong, Vu Thu Hien, Phung Pham, Trinh Tuan, Dinh Hanh and Francoise Ben Arous.
Never confrontational or aggressive, Vietnamese art is a lyrical,serene and intriguing moment of beauty in time. The juxtaposition of handmade rice paper and traditional lacquer painting with contemporary artistic techniques bridges the temporal worlds of past and present and spans the cultural divide of East and West. The paper is hand-crafted in traditional craft villages, using a centuries-old technique. The lacquer is distilled from the sap of an indigenous Asian tree, and layered and polished to produce shimmering effects of shade and colour.
