Exhibition “Slices” by Ngo Van Sac

Craig Thomas Gallery

In his solo exhibition, Ngo Van Sac returns to his unique form of wood burn painting as a follow-up to his 2015 exhibition of collage and acrylic on canvas paintings entitled “In Opposite”.

With “Slices”, Sac continues the evolution of his wood burn practice with the introduction of more acrylic paint and calligraphy, and through a change in primary subject matter from a focus on self-portraiture to the portrayal of the peoples of Vietnam’s ethnic minority groups.

What remains the same are Sac’s working method which demonstrates a mastery of his materials, and the exciting outcomes of his experimentation.
