Galerie Quynh in Ho Chi Minh City, a leading contemporary art gallery in Vietnam, is displaying works by the country's young distinguished artists in an exhibition called "Collisions of Clamor and Calm" until the end of August.
The city-based artist Do Hoang Tuong is exhibiting two earlier works that display the artist's strength as a figurative painter as he reflects on modern life to show the resilience of the human spirit.
Tran Van Thao, one of the country's most accomplished abstract artists, presents two Rain in Sunlight paintings dominated by blue that depict the tropical skies of southern Vietnam during the spring and summer rainy seasons.
The exhibition also shows new works by California-based artist Lien Truong including a selection from her social camouflage paintings and Bomb Crater, the latter exploring the sites of crater bombs in various countries to show the capacity for renewal amid destruction. The camouflage paintings address the implication of culture in geo-political conflicts.
The Propeller Group, a HCMC and Los-Angeles based art collective formed in 2006 by Phunam, Matt Lucero, and Tuan Andrew Nguyen, bring to the exhibition their compositions of the rich aesthetics and complexities of motorbike culture.
Galerie Quynh is located at 65 De Tham St., District 1.
