Exhibition after 30 years pursuing the art (May 11, 2005)

'Sorrowful' by Thanh Loc.

Couple Thanh Loc and Bach Lan are holding their first exhibition entitled ‘Paintings’ Focus’ at the Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts Association at 218 A Pasteur, district 3 from May 6 – 16. On display are 28 lacquer paintings portraying women and children.

With a realistic style and simple images of lotus, baskets, pottery vases, and palm-leaf conical hat, people and objects in the paintings of the couple Loc and Lan become lively and soulful.

'Fragile' by Bac Lan. 'Cosseting' by Thanh Loc.

It’s a surprise that Loc and Lan have never attended any professional courses. With a great passion for the art, they taught themselves and after five years, in 1980, they got a license for opening classes teaching portraiture. Women and children are always the main theme in their paintings.

The model in Loc’s paintings are his wife and children. Therefore, his portraits are full of love and soul. He also favours still-life paintings. Women in Loc’s paintings are reflected realistically while women in Lan’s paintings are frail and gloomy.

After 30 years pursuing the art, the couple Loc and Lan are considered talents in portrait.
