Ly Tran Quynh Giang

Lý Trần Quỳnh Giang (b. 1978, Hanoi) is an artist whose representations of human and animal figures exude a range of emotions and sensations: sadness, melancholy, ennui, uncertainty, intimacy, intensity, and eroticism. The sensations that impact the viewer upon perception of these artworks are powerful and difficult to name, because “sadness” seems insufficient in encompassing the range of feelings that her paintings invoke.
