Thavibu Gallery is pleased to present the art exhibition Security with new oil paintings by the female Vietnamese artist Dinh Y Nhi.
Dinh Y Nhi is 42 years old one of Vietnams foremost female artists. Maybe more than any other Vietnamese woman artist of her generation, she has earned her place amongst the most influential post Doi Moi artists to have emerged.
As with many contemporary thinkers, Dinh Y Nhi rejects the notion of collective memory and its links to a past. Instead her artistic practice has evolved from questioning the position of women in her Vietnamese society and by withholding any solace, her imagery distils any stereotyped considerations of her gender.
Totally unapologetic about any perceived notions about Vietnamese women, her use of raw colour, manipulation of depth, and the fusion of simplified forms her work is distinguished by a balance of incisive draftsmanship and painterly modelling.
Dinh Y Nhi has exhibited extensively in Asia and also in USA, Canada, Australia, Germany, Italy, Netherlands, Norway, and France. Her works are in the museum collections of the Singapore Art Museum, the National Art Gallery of Malaysia and Vietnams Fine Art Museum.
