Le combat du siècle — Hom Nguyen
Le combat du siècle
Past: March 21 → April 18, 2015
Born in 1972 in Paris, Hom Nguyen is a self taught artist whose style is instinctive and without complex.
He is a nonconformist personality, and so are his works. Working with charcoal, oil or even pen, each painting appears as a fight hand-to-hand with the material from which arises a desire: to reveal the depths of the human being through lines and colors.
Most of Hom’s work revolves around the creation of monumental portraits. The choice of colors, the application of the material or the liveliness of the gesture are always in order to show the world his vision of the human being beyond appearances. His pieces thus capture and transcende the depth of the feelings and the complexity of the emotions that upset the human soul.
His subtle representations address the duality of the visible and the invisible, the material and the immaterial.
Hom Nguyen pushes all of us to think, to an introspection on what we show about ourselves, what we are trying to hide and what we really are.
