Young painter makes a splash in HCM City with debut solo show (Jan 21, 2003)

HCM CITY — An attempt to view the world with the inner eye and to present it emotively are the predominant impressions that the works of young artist Nguyen Son evoke.

And his first solo exhibition, titled Nhung Ngay Qua (In Past Days), now on in HCM City, has been a freewheeling, yet forceful, almost overpowering, effort. He has worked on a gamut of media, water colour, oil on canvas, and even sketches. They range from human faces in prayer or in meditation, communicating different emotions, to a solitary man on the road, to the inanimate – objects like brushes, vases and lamps.

Some of the visions he depicts, like in Ac Mong (Nightmare), are surrealistic though their composition is complicated.

Other stand out paintings include Doi Ngay Mai (Waiting for Tomorrow), Nhac Chieu (Serenade) and Thoi Tho Au (Childhood time).

Ac Mong had won the Philip Morris ASEAN Art Awards in 2000 and he also won the Asia-Pacific Nokia Awards for 1999 – 2000.

Son graduated from the HCM City Fine Arts College in 2001. The 1974-born artist has taken part in many group exhibitions at home and abroad.

In Past Days is on show at HCM City’s Exhibition House in District 1. — VNS
