About The Artwork

I am attracted to the scenes of the vertical shapes that emerge out of the ocean. Every piece of Vịnh Hạ Long series (40-60cm) is a step where I could stand face to face, absorb and slowly feel, understand and imagine why it was called Hạ Long (descending dragons)and how nature went so deep inside the people. Pencil and paper help to express the bay as it was discovered in the fog with intimate and personal feel. In drawing # 8, I saw shapes of animals, a smiling face looking at a sleeping young..another turned to her for more attention.... mum and babies type of look. In the foreground, there was a fishing woman on a bamboo hand made barge. She seemed to focus on a some motion on water. It looked like she was trying hard to catch some fish for dinner. I drew in a small group of fish in deep water and one big one on the hook for her to take home for the family.
