Craig Thomas Gallery
Craig Thomas Gallery is hosting the solo exhibition, King, by Saigon-based artist Pham Thanh Toan from the end of July until Friday, Aug. 10.
Toan’s King collection comprises a bold batch of primarily over-sized canvases with several of the works being quadriptychs and pentaptychs.
The effect of such large paintings, often done in luxuriantly thick layers of imported oils, is immediate and visceral. The planning and ambition required to execute works of such magnitude is nothing short of miraculous for a young artist having his first gallery curated solo exhibition.
There is a confidence and skill on display in his new work – a complete departure from his previous two collections – that belies Toan’s relatively tender years; he is 26 years old.
King will run until Aug. 10 and is being shown at Craig Thomas Gallery, 27(i) Tran Nhat Duat, Q1, HCMC. For further info click on cthomasgallery.com. The gallery is open from 11am to 6pm (Monday to Saturday) and 12pm to 5pm (Sunday)
