Paintings 2007

I love humor, and I like to make a joke about everything. Su-realism is a useful language which helps me create fun. I also mix in my paintings hi-tech and lo-tech elements. I was born and raised in an apartment block in Hanoi – Vietnam. My father was a fighting pilot, and my mother was an engineer for the Vietnam Rail Way Corporation. No one in my family was concerned about art.
In my eyes, Vietnam is one of the strangest countries in the world.
People work and behave according to certain habits originating from the agricultural way of life. We live, quarrel, build, eat...just like farmers do. In Vietnam, the culture of the village persists and has a hidden power that affects all the population. Even though we are rushing towards capitalism, this life style shall never disappear. This is what makes Vietnamese people always special, wherever they are.

Flight: bamboo, paper, cloth, glue. 20m x 9m x 7m
My father was a fighting pilot, for Vietnamese Army. Bradford’s father was a fighting pilot too (American Air Force). Both of us have memories with fighting jet’s images.
Bradford and I want to build a model of a fighting jet with a form has been mixed from two different types of Jets: Mig 21 and F4 Phantom. Both types of these jets used to belong to contrary forces, and now when we have no more war, we would like to heal these contrary factors become one.
All the conflicts and violence are appear from the mis-understanding, art helps us (Bradford and i) to understand each other. The present is demonstrating this understanding by our common works.
As a gift of the present to the past and say “NO” to war and violence, we wanted to burn this model of jet at the opening.
