New Paintings by Du Hoang

Philadelphia Art Alliance Satellite Gallery
The Rittenhouse Hotel
210 W. Rittenhouse Square, Third Floor
Although there are many institutions that provide exhibition opportunities throughout the city, the Philadelphia Art Alliance is unique in its dedication to promoting the work of artists from this region through our continuing SOLOS program. We are proud to feature promising emerging and mid-career artists who may not have had an opportunity to show their work in a major institution.

Densely painted and often monochromatic, the work of artist Du Hoang addresses the many ways in which various cultures conceptualize and record time. Sand-like dots are registered in abstracted patterns on the surface of the canvas, recording the duration that the artist may have spent creating completing each work. His series of paintings are not merely a means to document the artist’s personal experience of time, but an attempt to reflect a large and more universal means by which various cultures organize daily experience. As the artist states “ Traditionally, our ancestors had various form of documenting communal/personal experiences: dance, oral/song, painting, and writing. In my work, I choose to document my personal (and communal) experiences on the canvas… as a process of registering time. “

Du Hoang received a BA in Studio Art from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, Elkins Park, PA, and a MFA from Ohio State University, Athens, OH. Recent solo exhibitions include: Algorithm of Strings, Can Tho, Vietnam; Generative Grammar of Constructed Self, Dungeon Gallery, Ohio State University, Athens, OH; Rhapsody in Red, Trisolini Gallery, Athens, OH; Interpreting Shiva, Dungeon Gallery, Ohio State University, Athens, OH; and Misinterpreting Chuang Tzu, Temple University Gallery, Philadelphia, PA. Du Hoang is a member of the Da Vinci Art Alliance and will have a solo exhibition, Kaliyuga Series, at the Da Vinci Art Alliance later in 2006.
