Artist : Nguyen Nguyen

nguyen 100x150 2

September’s cover artist, Nguyen Nguyen was born in 1957 in Dalat, Vietnam . This region , which lies in the highlands of central Vietnam , boasts what could be described as year-round spring weather . Beloved by the Vietnamese . Dalat is famous for its tea , pine trees , flowers and fresh air as well as for its history , a part of which is represented in the vacation homes built by the French during Vietnam’s colonial period .

    Nguyen’s artistic world has been described as something akin to “movement stillness” and “stillness in movement”- inspired by the Oriental philosophy of yin and yang .Thus, many of his works are either still lifes or landscapes.  Of these, one of his most representative is a landcape featuring fishermen angling in the rain .

    This particular work is composed of three sections : mountains, water, and in the foreground, the fishermen, done in shades of blue and green. The static mountains and water fuse naturally into the active image of the men. However, the sheets of rain, done in gray, give the entire canvas a very placid sense of rhythm. The strength of the blue and green background balanced by the thin, ash-colored lines, adding a pastel-like sofness, along with the Oriental sentiment suggested by the falling rain.Nguyen’s work leads viewers into a quiet, meditative world where there is quiet in movement and silent movement within stillness. Nguyen, born Hoang Khai Nguyen, graduated from Hanoi’s School of Fine Arts and works as a full time artist in Dalat .
