“I draw and paint in a desire to morph myself being one with nature in various pitches of feeling. Watercolour, ink on silk, acrylic on canvas… help me to freely self-dilute with my own dreamy obsessions. In my works, nature is simply a visual material for me to create my own form of feelings.” Thuy said.
