Living in the city’s noisy and stuffy surroundings and witnessing the messy and hurried changes of present-day life in the course of irresistible globalization, Tran Dinh Khuong like many other contemporary artists seem to rediscover peace of mind through the return to his real self or, to be more precise, to the peaceful atmosphere of the Vietnamese countryside that is full of the souvenirs of his sweet and fanciful childhood.
In fact, the native village offers an inexhaustible source of inspiration for Khuong’s art. The poetic, serene beauty of a wharf, a boat, a lotus pond, a cluster of banana trees as well as the seasonal changes in which nature is a real symphony of perfume and colors such as the season of lotus flowers, rice seedlings replanting time, the approach of autumn of winter, etc, all this is apt to evoke pastoral and lyrical melodies or inspire subtle artistic feelings that invite and prompt the painter to create works of arts.
Tran Dinh Khuong paints with his zealous and relentless nostalgia for the Vietnamese countryside and deep human feelings as well. A range of simple, bright, innocent, joyful and witty feelings is then expressed through the themes of childhood viz, buffalo and cow herding, crab and fish catching, playing children’s “game of square” or through themes depicting plain and gentle rural scenery e.g. going to market, picking lotus flowers, honoring Buddha at the pagoda. The artist all pictured them in monumental, brilliant, eye-catching compositions with the rhythm of contemporary, decorative design and the warm, splendid color scheme of the Vietnamese traditional and very original lacquer medium.
