Solo exhibition “The Mien” by Le Minh Duc opened in Hanoi

The Saigon Times Daily

“When painting, I’m not leaning much towards the depth of space, but the depth of psychology.” This self-expression is the artistic perspective thoroughly reflected in all 60 artworks displayed at the solo exhibition “The Mien” by artist Le Minh Duc.

The exhibition is on at VICAS Center for Assistance and Development of Contemporary Arts (VICAS ART STUDIO) in Hanoi’s Dong Da District from June 15 to July 14, 2018, according to Facebook fan page of the studio. 

With expressionism, Le Minh Duc does not care much about the principles of anatomy or graphics, but focuses only on the expression of the mien that is revealed by the painted subjects. Each portrait presents a unique character associated with a distinctive mental and psychological trait, yet shares a common thread: pure and sinless faces.

Duc has been an awesome landscape artist since his student life at Vietnam University of Fine Art. So far thousands of his expressionism poetic landscape paintings have come to the hands of customers all over the world.

However, he did not limit himself to that style, with which he has gained enormous success in both local and international galleries. Responding to his inner urge, he has continued to explore new things to fulfill himself.

Now, he still likes to work on landscapes but it’s not the magnificent scenery, the shimmering that people have to go somewhere or wait for the moment to find and reflect, but the natural scenery idyllic to the life around him such as street views from the high-rise buildings above, sometimes from houses along narrow alleys.

Recently, he has adopted neo-expressionism style in which, for him, the image is just a reason to play with colors to express his intuitive feelings toward a particular landscape. In terms of artistic language, his creativity has significantly contributed to national art scene.
