Entitled Bong va Hinh (Shadow and Shape), the on-going exhibition displays 22 oil-on-canvas paintings created in 2016 and 2017. The artworks were inspired by the simple, familiar things in life: streets, houses, trees, rivers and furniture.
Since beginning his journey with minimalism 30 years ago, the 56-year-old artist has practiced the minimalist style in every way possible.

“Maybe the artist wants to create a new ‘art-meditation’ approach where art has symbolic and suggestive values,” said art critic Phan Cam Thuong.
At 10.30am on May 5, the minimalist painter joined some other artists for a discussion about art.
Together with the Shadow and Shape, the VCCA is also hosting another exhibition featuring 60 pieces by veteran painter Pham Luc, one of the most renowned painters in Vietnam. The works were selected by artist and curator Cuong from Nguyen Si Dung’s private collection of 700 artworks.
