About the artwork

In this painting Hong Viet Dung depicts Vietnam’s Ha Long Bay with extraordinary texture and depth. The work features a monochromatic colour palette, which conveys a sense of harmony and serenity reflective of the scene depicted. The artist’s use of linear perspective creates a sense of depth, drawing the viewer into the poetical landscape he captures. In the foreground of the work a boat is visible on the water- our only anchor of reality in a sea of dreamy washes. The artist’s nuanced use of visual techniques and scale to inspire contemplation about the human position demonstrates his visual mastery, that has made him one of the most renowned contemporary Vietnamese artists.
