Tran Hong Duc

Abstract paintings by Tran Hong Duc has a very special style. From light-colored trails like very light strokes on paintings, the artist creates the colors of levels with a variety of techniques. Spreading, dots, throwing, dropping with rapid and slow and deliberate rhythms can be realized. Together with it, there are so many colors and feelings. Then, audacious strokes are shown on painting with combination of colors, showing sudden and sketchy emotions. Together with it, there are contours of polygon shapes and geometries mixed in multidimensional trails and naturally spreading colorful trails. Paintings are then gradually shaped in the moving of strokes and mentality of the artist. Seeing such the paintings, we sometimes see a city removed from its structure or a landscape with mixture of border contours of shape and space or a still-life with its covering peeled off. The interesting thing is the denying process towards everything and recognizing it by intuition and emotion, creating strokes. Perhaps, that is the origin of this abstract painting style. Tran Hong Duc was born in 1961. His name is not very familiar but it makes everybody think about a penmanship with powerful internal force and esthesis sense. He became a potential painter of Vietnam.

AUTHOR’S NARRATIVE

“Because the line is the psychology of the work, it is important that I do it correctly as I have become an abstract artist, something which I choose to do. It wasn’t something I rushed into. I choose abstraction very carefully,” he says. “When I became an artist, I tried drawing and painting in the style of many different schools, but in the end I felt that abstraction represented the best way for me to express my emotions and my view of the world. So it is very important to me to get the line correct and then the color. If there are not to my satisfaction, then the psychological and emotional impact of my work is lost.” 

“In some ways, I see my art as particularly Vietnamese, especially in the colors I use. Color is only one part of my work, but composition is, I think, the most important, that is what I initially try to concentrate on. And in this regard, before I start painting, I always make sketches. When I sketch, I am always thinking of the colors and how the light will work in the painting.”
