For Doan Xuan Tang, the mountainous region of Northwestern Vietnam never ceases to compel him to create. In fact, for most of his career, he has been making works about the people who live there, the beauty of their colourful traditional fabrics, as well as their sentiments. His past works included a series of portraits that conveyed these ethnic minority people’s sadness and torments, ingrained in their faces through streaks of colours. He painted their eyes expressive of inner sorrows and wishes for a better life. But as Tang continues to be drawn back to the region, his impression of it shifts.

In Tang’s new body of work, there is a sense of rejuvenation in the dancing bare feet of the people native to the golden mountain terrains, as they travel across the vast landscapes and elevate into space. Their faces are hidden behind the clouds, appearing and vanishing with the mountains and the woods. Through them, we see the artist’s admiration for the harmonious lives in which the people here live within nature. The constant movement in the artworks is also the change that we see in the artist’s practice. Pain no longer inflicts his paintings; in its place, are evocations of lives within the brilliant wilderness.

From March 1st through April 19th
