Elegance by Nguyen Van Cuong, Large Oil on Canvas Figurative Portrait Painting

2018

About

‘Elegance’ is a large contemporary oil on canvas portrait painting of vertical format created by Vietnamese artist Nguyen Van Cuong in 2018. Featuring a soft palette made of grey, purple, blue and pink tones, the painting showcases the portrait of an elegant Vietnamese woman, depicted on a light grey background. While the viewer is drawn to the close-up view of the woman’s face showing the perfection of her complexion and her modern hairdo, the character seems distant and emotionless. In Cuong’s own words: "My paintings are an attempt to show the contradiction between who women are and who they make themselves up to be. They address contradictions: femininity versus frivolity, truth versus fallacy, purity versus vulgarity, and true beauty versus a sheath of deception … I hope that "Makeup Faces" gives the viewer a subtle but provocative message with the aesthetic contained within each piece. Even better would be that the paintings lead to a dialog about "Makeup" and its implication.” Unframed, this vertical oil on canvas painting will bring a modern touch of elegance to any home, whether placed above a sofa, console table or credenza. Nguyen Van Cuong was born in 1976 in Bac Giang Province, Vietnam. He graduated from the Fine Art Teachers College in 1995 and at the top of his class from the Hanoi Fine Art University in 1999. He is currently a lecturer at the National College of Music and Painting. Cuong has had over 15 solo and group exhibitions since 1997 and has won numerous honors and awards including first prize in 1996 (Propaganda Paintings) and in 2011 (Self Portraiture). Nguyen Van Cuong primary medium is oil on canvas and he paints in a number of styles.
