Artist: Nguyễn Ngọc Thạch
Exhibition date: 9 August to 27 October 2019 (Opening at 6pm on 9 August 2019)

Born in Quang Ngai, Nguyễn Ngọc Thạch is a classically trained painter and graduate of the Ho Chi Minh City University of Fine Arts. He is intrigued by the psyche of the modern man, and the psychological “void” left behind by our fast-paced, machine-controlled, capitalism-driven life. For Materialize, Ngọc Thạch is developing a body of paintings based on the idea of “the waste man – those who choose to stay silent and uninvolved as they are met with everyday problems and societal issues.” The human figure in his work is distorted, their “ears twisted, and eyes and mouths removed… because they are wasted on him anyway,” states the artist.
