Ly Tran Quynh Giang
Ly Tran Quynh Giang (b. 1978) is best known for her oil painting and wood cut panels. Born, raised and living in Hanoi, graduated from Hanoi Fine Art University, Giang is one of the most prominent female contemporary artists of Vietnam. She is an artist whose representations of human and animal figures exude a range of emotions and sensations: sadness, melancholy, ennui, uncertainty, intimacy, intensity, and eroticism. The sensations that impact the viewer upon perception of these artworks are powerful and difficult to name, because “sadness” seems insufficient in encompassing the range of feelings that her paintings invoke.
Every of her solo exhibitions is a milestone for her career growth in terms of artistic expression and human development. Her important exhibitions are Where they turn to (2014), Hey are you sick (2010), The solitary world of Ly Tran Quynh Giang (2010), Giang (2007), Tropical zone (2002). Her most recent exhibition is Personal Structures - Vietnam in Venice with other 4 artists from her represented gallery in Venezia, Italy.
