HCM CITY (VNS) — Thirty artists from the Netherlands and 10 from Viet Nam are showcasing 70 works at the

exhibition Meeting Point – Dutch Coloured Art, at the HCM City Fine Arts Museum.

Roby Bellemans, curator and organiser of the exhibition, said it aimed to show contemporary trends.

Ma Thanh Cao, the museum's director, said the exhibits reflected various topics, from climate change and

environmental protection to Dutch and Vietnamese landscapes and people.

The exhibition features paintings, installation works, graffiti, digital art, video and sculptures in an eclectic range

of materials and styles and topics.

Simon Borst from Amsterdam focuses on plein-air paintings using oil paint on canvas or paper.

His works, including Home Abstraction and Meadow Fence, depict subjects from nature, landscapes and city

sites.

His paintings have been displayed in the Netherlands, Turkey, Austria and Greece.

The museum's deputy director, Hua Thanh Binh, presents abstract paintings depicting the deep sea. He uses

images of nude women and dark colours for his works.

Binh, who graduated from the Gia Dinh Fine Arts College (now the HCM City Fine Arts University) in 1974. He

has held several solo and group exhibitions in Viet Nam and several other countries.

Bellemans said he wanted to display all the artworks without titles. They are simply numbered from 1 to 70.
