Stroke is the primary language capable of manifesting human pictorial thoughts. Shape is confined by Stroke, rationalizing the artist’s stroke drawing, and disclosing his sentiment and art perspective.

Strokes and shapes are the most significant concerns in Nguyen Duong Dinh’s works. This exhibition brings together almost 80 works created with diverse materials such as lead, charcoal, ink, pastels, crayons, watercolors on paper size from A4 to A0, and 10 sets of ceramic sculptures (3 works per set, average diameter from 10 to 20 cm). A majority of these 80 works were selected from his collection of drawings in the Hanoi Live Drawing Society - an open space for all live sketching lovers.

In spite of the fast-paced sketching technique implied in «playing with strokes», INH is still able to accurately record shape, space and body features under various angles, creating emotional live model drawings. INH’s Strokes and Shapes are intrinsic and minimalist to the core, arising from his thoughtful and attentive observation.
