Art exhibition on Central Highlands opens (February 22, 2005)

A work by artist Le Van.
Artists Le Van and Dam Dang Lai are introducing their 40 art works reflecting the social life of the central highlanders at an exhibition named ‘Central Highlands Spring’ in Buon Ma Thuot city.

Silk painting is the strength of artist Le Van as they make up half among his 20 works at the exhibition. Different from others, he likes using two opposite colour: red and black to depict the simple, wild and also exciting characteristics of the region. The themes in his paintings are quite various with the wide Central Highlands through ‘Dan Chim Thien Di’ (Birds Leaving Their Residence); a cheerful Central Highlands through ‘Don Ban Ngay Mua’ (Receiving Friends in Harvested Season) or ‘Dan Voi Chien Thang’ (Elephants in Victory) or an warm and friendly Central Highlands through ‘Ben Nhau’ (Close Together)

Iron masks by Dam Dang Lai.
Unlike Le Van, 20 sculptural works of Dam Dang Lai who has just organised seven individual exhibitions in Japan, excluding his group shows, express the world’s modern feelings on the Central Highlands. With materials of wood, bronze and iron, his works also reveal his installation style.

In particularly, Dam Dang Lai has a collection of masks on hoc blades entitled ‘Nguoi Quen’ (Acquaintances). The collection shows “face of the era”, including a happy one, a sad one, a worried one, a kind-hearted one and many others

This is a painting and statue exhibition of quality in the Central Highlands to welcome the lunar New Year and also to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Buon Ma Thuot Victory (March 10, 1975).
