The gallery is open every day. Come and meet the artist Thuy Bui-Howarth. She will be very happy to explain the tradition lacquer technique from her homeland Vietnam. Studio Art Unlimited, 25 Grand-Rue, 1204 Geneva Born and having grown up in Hanoi, with a strong love for art, Thuy Bui Howarth has found her own way to express herself through lacquer – a very special and precious material from Vietnam- to create unique paintings. Maybe still considered as a new comer in Europe, in fact, Vietnamese lacquer painting ( or Sơn Mài) has been in existence for over80 years. Previously, for thousands of years, lacquer was used for the decoration of objects.
Thuy’s paintings are very much influenced by music and nature. You can see the orchestra of life created by a fun-and-stun process of using breathtaking and original techniques and materials. These include eggshell, mother of pearl, silver and gold leaves. These materials are rubbed with sand paper until the colours and textures burst out of the surface, layer by layer.
