HCM CITY (VNS) — Ha Noi-based artist Ngo Van Sac is showing new work at his solo exhibition In Opposite, containing collage and mixed media paintings on canvas, at the Craig Thomas Gallery in HCM City.

Best known for his distinctive wood burn paintings which often feature multiple self-portraits, Sac has taken a somewhat surprising but ultimately successful turn in a series of ethereal and arresting works that show the artist turning his gaze outwards, according to a press release from the gallery.

Of his latest collection, Sac said: "In creating this series, I wanted to highlight the interesting contrasts between the existence of people and nature. Rather than focus on high concepts, I paint the simple things happening around me with events that I and everyone else face each day."

Sac is a graduate of the Viet Nam Fine Arts University. This is his second solo exhibition at Craig Thomas Gallery, 27i Tran Nhat Duat St, District 1, HCM City. It can be seen from November 20 – December 8. — VNS
