In April 1976 the first boats of refugees fleeing Vietnam sailed to various countries, heralding a series of arrivals over the next few years. Vietnamese-Dutch sculptor and painter Vinh Phúóng Nguyen born in Djiring, provincie Lam Dong, Vietnam (1959) was one of them. In the early nineties he had his first solo exhibition at Galerie van Gelder in Amsterdam. His motifs always have an undertone of pain and apparently urge to seek protection, together with a dark and enigmatic image making. In this context a broken tiny branche of silver suggests an expression of pain and loss, and not so much a light hearted mimicry of nature, as one may think at first sight.
