Exhibition “Perfect Reality” by Luu Tuyen
The solo exhibition “Perfect Reality” by Luu Tuyen features 30 artworks using mixed media on canvas and two sculptures, spanning five years of working and mastering the use of epoxy resin in art.
Exhibition “Perfect Reality” by Luu Tuyen.
Epoxy is an organic compound with a plastic composite base and a special composition that makes the material far more water- and heat-resistant than many other materials. Due to the low shrinkage and excellent adhesion, epoxy resin, when mixed with various active ingredients, can form adhesives with many superior properties and at the same time create durable, yet beautiful, surfaces. Epoxy is widely used in construction and shipbuilding, where it is used to coat underwater surfaces.
With Luu Tuyen, the process of exploring resin is not only a process of mastering his art, but also a journey of self discovery. His artworks portray isolation, self-doubt, apprehension, and the juxtaposition of the self, objects and spaces around him. Yet Luu Tuyen’s works do not impose the artist’s beliefs on his audience; viewers are drawn into multi-dimensional dialogues, each fitting their subconscious perceptions and aesthetics.
“Art is a mirror on which one reflects and grows. My art reflects my anxieties, torments, and questions about a present-day reality where time-honoured values have been replaced with false, superficial values and even falsehood. In that context, core values must be preserved,” Luu Tuyen was quoted as saying.
Opening: Tuesday, June 5, 2018, 5 pm
Exhibition: June 5 – 11, 2018
Venue: Vietnam Fine Arts Museum
