To tell the
truth, I can’t imagine how much the emotional desire is exposed, implied
to Nguyen Minh Son’s painting.
Nguyen Minh Son
was born and grew up in the North, his dreams aroused from the scratch
and the colours of the famous Dong Ho- The folk paintings- combined with
the knoledg of the modern painting he got from the studying at Hanoi
Fine Art University( Nguyen Minh Son graduted in 2000). He early managed
to create his own way(not yet style) in his art career. Staying away
from the city of Thang Long- Hanoi, the centre of the most modern
painting schools. Nguyen Minh Son quietly come back to find and depict
the quiet beauty in the countyside. With his instinction on painting of
art, so naïve and simple, he brought to the viewers
the feeling of purely and identify. Under his
brush is the blue sky, green trees, red leaves seasonal, simple houses
and small boats, all in legendary Colours. So real and so virtual,
Nguyen Minh Son has prefered pure and strong colours sach as: red,
yellow, orange, blue when combined these colours created romantic and
charming effects. Nguyen Minh Son’s paintings implied a vivid life
eventhough there were not imegine of people. This vitslity was effects
by the strokes which the seemed to be either careless or considerate in
the lay- out which appears to be quick natural, but in fact, close
details. This is strong point of Nguyen Minh Son and choke point of his
innerfeelings. The viewers easily recognize him by his repreated style
of painting, the sence of which there were only clouds, sky, houses,
trees, sand- beache, sea… with cold or hot colours. These were to emply
the vague sadness.
One of the
way to reach the depth of art is to paint a landscape picture to reveal
feeling. Said To Dong Pha: “ To paint is not only just to draw what you
see, but also understand cast- off shapes and bring them successfully to
the pictures”. Truong Ngan Vien startes painting a landscape picture, he
aimed to “feel the variant changes of soul”. And Thach Dao managed to
reach: “ The big rule of the soul changes to ensure the world
continuty”. Also Nguyen Minh Son’s landscape paintings snet to find the
east art’s spirit, like the outstanding ancient Chinese painters. He
gained his first success from the local, national exhibitions, as well
as home amndabroad exhibitions… These are always and ever the dream of
any painters and sculptors( in any generation and time).
Son has affirmed his own style, has got the fruit of his creation by his
paitings… Is it a positive encouragement or a big challege to Nguyen
life give us the peace in our souls among this crowded and exciting
life. We can found that silence in Nguyen Minh Son’s paintings. The
artist was born Bac Ninh, the well- off land which generates many
cultural values of matter and spirit. The love of people here is as
fervid as the land is, and artist Nguyen Minh Son shows his passion in
his every landscape paintings.
artist have been choosing this subject to express on canvas, but the
deep passion Nguyen Minh Son feels for homeland makes his own stamp.
People always find out a peaceful immense atmosphere in his paintings,
the calm specific to rural life, or is it the quiet in the artist’s
spirit when remember his homeland? A bit agitation in leaf canory and on
water surface can’t break the silent scence.
most favorite theme based on reality, but liberal style, each Nguyen
Minh Son’s painting has it own beauty. Even strong brush- stroke’s
inspired by deepfelt senti,ent, makes different effect on canvas.
Construction of group of cottages, boats, plants and trees, the sky,
expanse of flowers… are countryside in the artist’s mind. Nguyen Minh
Son’s palette is pure, not like in reality, all he expreeses is a fervid
emotion in a splendid palette. Emotions in Nguyen Minh Son’s paintings
are always nostalgia, though it’s scence of territorial waters, Guom
Lake, or a region he has passed.
It’s 6 years
since his graduation, now living and working in Hanoi, recantly he’s
found his way of pastoral painting. He wants his compositions have their
intimate meaning to people, take them back to memorial regions. These
pastorallandscapes is getting lost day by day, so Nguyen Minh Son loves
to keep them, even on canvas. Watching his artworks, It’s easy to see
something familiar, reminds us a memory deep in mind. Now, pastorel
paintings is the subject purseus Nguyen Minh Son. He paints by all his
art instinct, as though everything are in his mind, and that his
inspiration comes so easily. Specific in nGuyen mInh Son’s paintings
takes shape from that deep internal feelings. He’s been working so hard
to let more and more people find themselves in his paintings.
