Tomorrow, L’Espace will open the lacquer painting exhibition Nature – Nostalgia, which showcases artworks by three artists: Đặng Thu Hương, Lý Trực Sơn, and Nguyễn Thị Quế.
The artists were schoolmates at the Việt Nam Fine Arts College in the 1960s, who together explored the ’oriental’ art of sanded lacquer. The destructive war during that time brought them closer to nature and inspired them to take on simple subjects: flowers, people, the countryside. The charm of their works resides in the sparkling of the lacquer and its red, black, silver and gold palette.
The free entry exhibition will open to public from today until July 23. L’Espace is at 24 Tràng Tiền Street. — VNS
