In Bloom is the latest collection of works from Vietnamese artist Nguyen Tran Cuong. The exhibition features lacquer paintings of floral arrangements, captured as objects of beauty and the blooming of which act as visual indicators of the seasons.

Nguyen is close to nature. From his near open-air studio, he observes and feels the seasons as they come and go. The blooming and blossoming at different times of the year act as visual cues to the changing seasons and provide him with the inspiration for these works. Nguyen paints floral arrangements in vases or pots, devoid of all pretention and plainly capturing the essence of simple beauty using the richness in tone and depth that only lacquer can give. As an overview of the exhibition, the presence of all the different floral species blooming together within a shared vacuum transforms the gallery space into a timeless place of serenity and contemplation.
