The opening art exhibition party at D Gallery on 2nd April 2010 by Nguyen Tan Cuong

This series of paintings is comprised of separate standalone pieces which, when combined, contribute to a larger, unified whole. Day-Night and Day presents a notion of time instantiated as a confluence of continuous moments.  This facilitates a merging of opposites into a common stream.

The intent of this collection is not to depict any specific theme, object or person; rather, they aim to evoke a private perceptual reaction through the use of repetitive imagery and a tone of de-realism.

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).
