HUE (VNS) — Artist Ky Huu Phuoc from Sinh Village in Hue has unveiled a new collection of paintings created using traditional methods.
Entitled Thoi Vu (The Crop), the collection has featured four paintings depicting farming activities.
Unlike the traditional Sinh paintings which are linked to ancestral rituals, Phuoc's paintings are mostly decorative.
In 2010, the artisan also introduced the Tro Choi Dan Gian (Folk Games) collection, while in 2007, he presented the Bat Am (Eight Court Musicians) collection.
Originating in Sinh Village in Phu Vang District in about the 15th century, the process involves a woodblock and hand- drawn images on diep paper — a kind of traditional poonah paper that uses mother-of-pearl to create a sparkling surface — which has been linked to ancestral worship. — VNS
