Lights From The East

Event: Lights From The East
Date: Tue. September 18, 2012 - Sun. October 14, 2012.
Location: The East Gallery (334 Dundas Street West) - Toronto


The East Gallery presents eight internationally recognized contemporary artists from Vietnam and Burma who address spirituality in very personal and often unconventional ways. The works range from S. Moe Z.’s boldly colored paintings of Burmese monks and Khin Zaw Latt’s striking Buddha images to Nann Nann’s abstract, meditative reflections about her Buddhist beliefs and Vu Thu Hien’s dreamlike and sometimes haunting watercolors that refer to the soul, to spirits and ancestor worship. Nguyen Kim Quang uses symbols from Buddhism and Taoism in his abstract, striking lacquer creations while Dinh Thi Tham Poong’s intricate watercolors reflect the spiritual relationship between humans and nature.

Artists from Burma:
Nann Nann
Khin Zaw Latt
S. Moe Z.

Artists from Vietnam:
