From the organizer:
“Silent Talk” is the name of the sculpture and art exhibition by artist Wattanachot Tungateja (Thailand), sculptor Mukai Katsumi (Japan) and artist Cong Kim Hoa (Vietnam). Coming from 3 different cultures, the 3 artists have their own languages of expression and preferences in the use of media.
Wattanachot Tungateja uses the modern medium of acrylic paint. The shapes in his paintings look seemingly simple at first with fields of rocks or the sky, but when looked closely, they turn out to be abstract images of the world and humanity.
Cong Kim Hoa’s artworks are Vietnamese traditional lacquer paintings. Her abstract works are constituted by bold shades and brushstrokes, and successfully take advantage of the color lacing technique of lacquer art. In her paintings, sometimes shapes and strokes are just a tool to emphasize a deep, rich background.
Mukai Katsumi is a familiar name with Vietnamese art lovers. He has visited Vietnam many times before and has his works displayed in several grand art centers in Vietnam. His works featured in “Silent Talk” are made of wood, not gigantic but not so small either. These wooden sculptures are not human-shaped, not anything-shaped, but evoke in many a déjà vu – those of the invisible links between human and nature.
After working together in many collaborative art projects in different countries, these three artists will meet once again in this exhibition at Vietnam Fine Arts Museum.
