My piece “Remembrance of the Shattered Dreams” is currently on a collective show (during Nov 11-19, 2017) by my representing gallery Great Banyan Art from New Delhi, at The Stainless Gallery, at Mira Corporate Suits, New Delhi. The Hindu, a national newspaper, interviewed me briefly the other day, the article was published both in print and online.
“Spain-based Vietnamese artist, Viet Ha Tran, who draws pictures of women’s emotions, inner dreams, intimacy, poetry and philosophy with her camera, couldn’t agree more. “India is predicted to be the next top Asian economy after China with a rising buying power and appreciation for art. I think international artists like me would benefit greatly from the growing power of the Indian rich.”
Viet Ha loves to paint women, she admits. Her work, Remembrance of the Shattered Dreams, features a woman in a dreamlike, surreal environment. Elaborating on her fascination for the female gender she says, “I mostly photograph women since I feel my soul akin to theirs, and I am specifically looking for emotions in a photograph. I want to immortalise that fragile, breakable soul that a woman carries inside her, through her look, her eyes.”
“Also, I am also intrigued by sadness, melancholy and deep emotions, I guess that comes from deep within my Asian soul (Buddhism taught me that suffering is beautiful), somehow I feel the joy in slow emotions and even sadness,” she adds.”
