From the organizer:

You are invited to the exhibition “Mannequin World” by Nguyen Khac Chinh.

“Chinh Nguyen Khac captures the attention of the world of artists with his outstanding works which depict the disturbance, the confusion of conflicts of individual versus society and contemporary issues. He’s a phenomenon that possesses an instinct for existentialism, always delves into the world of psychoanalysis searching for its true ego. This creates layers of complexity in his paintings, sometimes a bit too much.

Yet, in his journey of an artist, Chinh found his way through by leaping into the realm of pure beauty. This change of direction opens an opportunity for him to achieve his artistic vision. There is no limit, no boundary to what constitutes beauty. It is ever-changing yet never spirals away from its radical principals.

Chinh Nguyen Khac has chosen the right path and created works that are high standard. His brush is tight and precise but never archetypal or exaggerated. Colours change from harmonic and melancholic to vivid in such a natural shift. Graphics skillfully structured yet not photographic. But what makes Chinh different is his ability to put his subjects into a stasis that transcends time and space. Reality becomes virtual, slippery and hazy.

A great work of art can create a world of its own that will assimilate with its spectator or its owner until it becomes part of their life. Chinh Nguyen Khac manages to do just that. His paintings connect with people through its solemnness, delicacy, tenderness and subtle hint of religiousness.

I believe Chinh Nguyen Khac will be able to go further, both back to the past and into the future. He will continue to transform but never lose his ego.

He is a true artist.”
