D GALLERY, a contemporary art gallery Located in the Royal Phuket Marina, is pleased to present the “Day-Night and Day” -Contemporary Art exhibition- emerging by Vietnamese artist, Nguyen Tan Cuong, that will be held on 02 April – 31 May 2010.

This series of paintings are separate pieces and pieces in one piece. Time in Day–Night and Day contains several moments that continuously run around and mingle all the opposite and contrary aspects in a flow.

These works do not depict a specific subject or things or person; instead it lets our visionary images and some subtle change in repeated images which just give a feeling like in a half-awake dream and some narratives that can be quietly shared with the viewers.”

Nguyen Tan Cuong was born in Hanoi, Vietnam in 1953. He currently lives and works in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Graduated from the Saigon Fine Arts Collage in 1973. Nguyen Tan Cuong is a master at manipulating light. He builds up a texture on the canvas and then creates dynamic and compelling paintings through rich imagery and texture. He makes much use of rough, natural fiber in his work, which gives them an organic quality that is both visual and tangible. There is a raw elegance and sensuality in this body of work. His work is not entirely abstract yet there are rarely recognizable images.

He has participated in several exhibitions in Vietnam and also taken part in shows in Japan (1994, 1996), Switzerland (1995), Singapore (1995, 1997), Philippines (1996), Belgium (1997), Korea (1998), Italy (1998), USA (1997, 1998, 2003), England (2006), Canada (2008). His works have been listed in Vietnam National Museum of Fine Arts,  Vietnam Fine Art Association in Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts Museum and Museo Biblioteca Achivio in Italy.

The formal opening of the exhibition of 15 new works by Nguyen Thanh Cuong will be on Friday, 2nd April 2010 between 6.00pm and 9.00pm at D Gallery, located within the Royal Phuket Marina. Everybody is welcome.

D Gallery open hours are 11:00 am. – 07:00 pm. for Tuesday – Saturday and from noon until 06:00 pm. on Sunday.
