“Seasons passed by” (4pcs) 122x45cm (per pc.) watercolor on silk by Vu Dinh Tuan, is available @hanoistudiogallery Seasons come and go. They linger in our minds, hidden in the shape of a prolonged déjà vu of nature. Under layers of surrealistic dimensions, seasons rest. Within them, we find the philosophy of our lives, bloom out of a homefield wild flower, hang on a long-forgotten childhood hair braid. Seasons linger. And they look at us with eyes of truth. Give us the natural energy that unconsciously we seek, but never realize our desires. We have stopped talking about the “magic” of Vu Dinh Tuan. We also have stopped discussing about “How” and “Why” when he creates. We only wait, and patiently wait for “Seasons” to “Linger”. Vu Dinh Tuan is a contemporary Vietnamese artist known for his distinctive paintings on silk. Tuan transforms traditional icons through his unique visual language, transforming images of women playing musical instruments into vivid birds and flowers. Born in 1973 in Vietnam, Tuan went on to study at the Hanoi University of Fine Arts where he received both his BFA and MFA. He has gone on to have exhibitions both in his country and abroad. The artist currently lives and works in Hanoi, Vietnam.
