SOME EXCERPTS OF ART CRITICS WRITING ABOUT THE PAITINGS OF TRANHA
Artist Tran Ha develops folk style combined with modern one without losing the tradition. It is a realistic , stylized way on a flat plan , using lots of hot , conventional hues , having rich color intensity and decoration , contrasting but harmonious. The “hot” and “cold” of Tran Ha can describe the folk Oriental art which is full of infinity and legends.
The sight , the people and the country in his paintings are very charming and lyrical. All are very quiet but they express the peaceful , strong life of the Vietnamse farmers.
Vietnam Art Critic
In his paintings Tran Ha often uses oil paint and mixed materials . He is skillful at the technique using the special beauty of each material. He not only uses the traditionally oriental way ofVietnamto draw but he also adopts the art of oil painting of former Vietnamese artists. This makes his paintings warm with Vietnamese character.
Looking at his paintings , viewers always have good memories of their childhood in a peaceful Vietnam.
Le Quoc Bao
Looking at Tran Ha ‘s paintings , viewers are very anxious because of the tormenting memories of the strange and familiar country. The conical hats , the banana leaves , the lotus are typical features ofVietnam. They are put into the paintings by the artist , using very modern style. The hues used there are hot but they are softened by the technical lay-out which is very sophisticated and elegant and expressed emotionally by the artist. The paintings of artist Tran Ha have hidden emotional tones and glittering poetry. The emotional waves are strong enough to reduce the nostalgia.
