Lương Lưu Biên - Tribe of Loneliness - Bầy Cô Đơn @ Craig Thomas Gallery

Craig Thomas Gallery is pleased to invite you to the cocktail reception opening of Tribe of Loneliness, a solo exhibition of mixed-media paintings by Saigon-based artist Luong Luu Bien. The exhibition will open at our Tran Nhat Duat gallery on 17 July 2020 from 6-9pm.

The works of Tribe of Loneliness continue to explore the Luong Luu Bien’s obsessions with isolation and social disaffection, but paintings like Private Corner and The Way of Pilgrims also radiate feelings of love, warmth and humour which seem to reflect Bien’s personal growth over the ensuing decade. There is a natural tension between hope and despair in the collection which speaks deeply of the human condition. Bien says, “From silent private spaces, from individuals screaming in their loneliness, I come now towards compositions that are more crowded. They are congregations, communities of people, societies. This, however, is the perspective of someone who is escaping this individuality and taking on the perspective of one living among a greater collective. Every person is within themselves an entire world and this fact becomes more pronounced when we are brought together.”

Opening: 17 July 2020, 6-9pm
Exhibition dates: 17 July – 6 June, 2020

Location: 27i Tran Nhat Duat Street, Tan Dinh Ward, District 1, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
