Hong Viet Dung
Misty Nostalgia , 2017

Oil on Canvas
110,5 x 210cm


In his recent works, Ha Long Bay, the subject matter goes beyond reminding the viewers of the Vietnamese national treasure. His works emanates a calm and serene quality of Ha Long Bay that is ironic to its legendary origin. 'Ha Long' is directly translated as 'Bay of descending Dragons'. According ancient belief, in an attempt to save the Vietnamese people from foreign invasion, these dragons spewed pearls that formed the scattered limestone structures of today, preventing invaders. The chaos that constitutes this ancient belief is where the artist has instead used to depict peace and tranquility. Hong uses simplicity to present the very essence of his works to the viewers, simple yet stunning. Like Hong once said: "I always paint people and views that surround me. This simple beauty is lyrical…I like to reduce details."
