Tram Bui


About This Work

Tram Bui’s exhibition of new oil paintings on panel extends her interest in dichromatic silhouettes of buildings under construction. The colors are vivid and the drawing precise, but the surfaces are more meticulously rendered. Unlike her previous shows, this body is conceived as a whole, systematically exploring basic color theory through a succession of two-color pairings, alternating the descriptions of the sky and the building. All but one of the images draw on various views of the same building rather than different buildings. The changing color pairings provide the dominant effect as the colors advance and recede through the contrasting combinations defining the architecture.
