The Quynh Gallery welcomes from the 7 December to the 30 January 2019 the solo exhibition “An every day” by Nguyen Quan Huy, devoted to the lives of women in Vietnam. “An Every day” or a series of large-scale blue portraits, inspired by natural indigo dyes, represent Hmong women in a background of misty mountain landscapes reflecting the foggy and dreamlike freshness of the Vietnamese Highlands mountains and the beauty of H’mong women belonging to this ethnic minority.
Vietnamese pioneer artists to exhibit his work internationally, Nguyen Quan Huy has significantly influenced the development of the Contemporary Vietnamese art these recent years. In the early 1990s, he initially collaborated with Nguyen Minh Thanh and Nguyen Van Cuong (Hanoi Triad). Her portraits and video installations are generally about women’s lives in Vietnam. His works have been shown in several solo exhibitions in Vietnam, Asia, France, Germany, the United States, and Australia.
