    Sixty paintings by artist Pham Luc are on display at the Vincom Center for Contemporary Arts in Hanoi. Luc is considered one of the most noteworthy painters in Vietnam today. The artworks were selected by curator/artist Le Thiet Cuong from a private collection of 700 artworks belonging to Dr Nguyen Si Dung. ‘Pham Luc possesses a liberated, spontaneous spirit when it comes to painting,’ said Cuong. ‘Viewers can easily feel the strong waves of emotions looking at his work. Painting, to Pham Luc, is catching those emotions and putting them on the canvas with a strong sense of urgency. His style is quick and direct - no styling, ‘pruning’ or complicating what he has painted. A discussion with Pham Luc and Cuong, themed ‘War and Peace’, will be held in conjunction with the exhibition. Several workshops, mini shows and art activities will also take place on weekends. Free entry.

Missing the Woods by Le Duc Hung raises the alarm about the widespread deforestation that is destroying the ecosystem, and The Society by Yen Nang conveys the message of living with a positive outlook. By using discarded peach branches as the main material for their works, the artists aim to remind communities of a more positive interaction with their ecological and social environment.
