Marking her return to silk work after a deviation to ceramics, in ‘Beyond The Hills’, Phuong is showing her new series of delicate silk paintings and a minimalist installation, dealing with the question about self consciousness, time and personal space.

‘Beyond the Hills’ is part of Phuong’s visual diary which reflects her recent experience of loss, of life and death, it therefore, is a deeply personal work both in subject and production by an artist ready to listen to her intuition.

Trained in the art of silk and oil painting at the Ho Chi Minh City Fine Arts University, Phuong (b. 1984 in Ho Chi Minh City) often humorously explores the experience of living in a society where one has to wear a kind of disguise in society, hiding their true self within. 

Working between silk, ceramic, oil and installation, Phuong’s art is in part inspired by her 2011 residency in Japan, evident in her soft brushstrokes and ethereal use of color that is reminiscent of Japanese silk artist Utagawa and the contemporary paintings of Yoshimoto Nara.

Recent notable exhibitions of Phuong include: ‘White, Black & Gold’, Japan Foundation, Hanoi 2015; ‘Above Under Sky’, Manzi Art Space, Ha Noi, 2014; ‘Occupy Utopia: Images Festival’, Aalborg, Denmark, 2014; ‘Peonia Dream’ (solo), San Art Productions + Phuong My Boutique, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, 2013; ‘A Transformative Disguise’ (touring solo), Sàn Art, Ho Chi Minh City & Japan Foundation, Ha Noi, Vietnam, 2012; ‘Women in-between: Asian Women Artists 1984- 2012’, Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, Fukuoka, Japan, 2012; ‘Sapporo Biennale 2011’ , Sapporo, Hokkaido, Japan, 2011; ‘Sai Gon Contemporary’, La Lanta Fine Art Gallery, Bangkok, Thailand, 2011; ‘Talent prize 2010’, Vietnam Fine Arts University, Ha Noi, Vietnam, 2010.
