HA NOI (VNS) - Nineteen of the latest oil paintings by Vietnamese artist Dương Thùy Dương will be displayed at the French Institute in Ha Noi from February 27.
The exhibition, entitled Nhin qua cửa sổ (Looking through the window), will give the public a chance to understand better the profound thoughts of a young artist and a young mother.
"I love the mornings, after my children go school, when I stay at home alone. With a hot coffee in my hand, I listen to the magical and melancholic melodies of Rachmaninov, and look through the window. It has a large frame and through it, I can see the endless green space full of summer sunshine, the falling leaves of autumn, the grey and sad days of winter, and the fragile beauty of spring," Dương confided.
"I love sitting down like this, thinking and thinking. Nothing is important, just simple thoughts of a normal person, a normal woman and a normal mother."
"When the coffee becomes cold, the music stops and the four seasons pass…I begin to paint," she said.
Born in 1979 in Hà Nội, Dương studied painting at the Viet Nam Fine Arts College from 1998 to 2000, and studied fashion design at the Ha Noi University of Industrial Fine Arts in 2000.
She also graduated from the Burg Giebichensteion University of Art and Design, Halle, in Germany in 2009.
Her works, which have been displayed in individual and collective exhibitions, have been highly appreciated in Viet Nam and abroad.
The exhibition will run till March 21 at the institute located at 24, Tràng Tiền Street, Hà Nội. – VNS
