Vu Duc Trung
Hanoi, Vietnam , 1981
Life is so long and I cannot know who I am tomorrow. The faces are patchy with streaks of colours. Some are barely visible, illuminated in shades of lacquer. Whether it is a self-portrait of me or the face of a chance encounter, I can feel it deeply across the distance between the painting. I still see in my paintings the images of flickering water and cool forests that are recurrent subjects throughout my work. I create portraits that come to me as the optical illusions of life that is blurred by time and which must melt away into emptiness and decay. I live and work with my faces
