Je veux divorcer (I want to divorce)







25


Anh Duong is the Frida Kahlo

of the 21st century—unafraid of

men, unafraid of sex, unafraid

of criticism, unafraid of being

herself. Her work is both brave

and beautiful, stylish and

upsetting, way out and too in.

But it is of such contradictions

that art is made.”

Bob Colacello, 2000


The Indian Servant

“If a single line could say everything,

I would like to stop there. I don’t

want to describe things but to reveal

them. In my opinion a portrait is


memory. I consider it as a dialectical

game with the mirror image, which

I analyse and deal with in a pictorial

manner. Every work of an artist is

a self-portrait. I am more conscious

of that process than most. The

subject matter disappears through

repetition.”


L’avantage de l’assassin sur la victime

“I never start with the narrative: I

let it come through paint. I like to

start with the desire to paint a face,

an object or an image of a dream and

then the story will be told through

each brushstroke.”

Anh Duong, 2012

Seule avec lui (Alone with him)

“And it is the canvas that

speaks, it is not I that speaks on

the canvas.”

Anh Duong, 1999

35


“This work is not manneristic or

decorative. It is not on automatic

pilot. Nor is it about style or

technique. There is a complete

urgency and necessity to every mark

in each painting.”

Julian Schnabel, 2000

“I like to see how paintings affect

the space, turning the neutrality

of the gallery into a familiar place.

The paintings have been around

me in my studio for a long time. It’s

interesting seeing something that

is so close to me, so intimate, out

there in the world, in the public

eye. And when that happens,

they’re not mine anymore.”

Anh Duong, 1997

“My paintings – that’s where I

recognize myself the most... I always

try to stay as close to my dreams

as I can. Without dreams, nothing

would happen.”

Anh Duong


















“(...) her paintings expose

an unexpected, unglamorous, intimate relationship with

her body (...) Duong’s paintings should be viewed as

contributions to a different genre - they belong alongside the

work of women such as Dora Maar, Anaïs Nin, and Frida

Kahlo, artists who compellingly exposed interior worlds

whose beauty, intelligence, and character inspired creativity,

both in themselves and in others”
