Above is an image from the studio of Đỗ Xuân Diệu, a sculptor based in HCMC. Both Sandrine and I are working with Diệu for our upcoming installations at the Blue Space Gallery later this month. Diệu is a graduate of the HCMC Fine Arts University and current instructor at the HCMC University of Architecture, and also the younger brother of my colleague Dỗ Xuận Tinh, a painter who will be joining Bùi Cong Khánh and I in Bangkok later this month.
Hopefully, I will be able to spend more time at Diệu's studio where I can better learn how to make my own molds (plaster, silicon, fiberglass, glass, etc). The bust above is work-in-progress and currently stands at nearly 1.5 meters high!
