The World Art collection at Royal Pavilion & Museums, Brighton & Hove, which has some paintings by Soe Naing, featured his paintings on their blog recently. Click on the link above to go to their slideshow and entry by Sarah Cook:
”Soe Naing’s use of vivid colours and visible brushstrokes invest his paintings with a real sense of energy and spontaneity. Amongst these brightly-coloured brushstrokes he also creates inky, black, calligraphic marks which give the impression of facial features, claws, ears, talons and tongues. Along with colour you can see that the expressive quality of line is important to Soe Naing. Every brushstroke is applied with a sense of urgency”
Read a little more about Soe Naing here and at his page on Yadanapura. Paintings by Soe Naing are available from Sa Sa Bassac in Phnom Penh, from Callie Enlow in the US (and on-line), in London (contact us), and in wonderful quantities in Yangon, at Pansodan Gallery.
