Out of School


Exhibition by Marie-Dominique Boneu Hyman

From 1st to 24th December

Marie-Do Boneu Hyman will show her new series of oil paintings. This French artist, who has been living in Vientiane for 11 years, is known mostly for her vegetal lacquer work and the creative workshops during which she shares her artistic passion. In Out of School, however, she is playing hooky.

When her classes are over, the artist takes up her brushes and uses her students’ leftover oils to paint in total freedom. She had neither sketches, lines nor plans when she did these paintings – her only aim was weightlessness and transparency. Pleasure through sadness along with the longings born of this difficult period.

She used thin fabric from primary schools on which bits of lessons are written in Lao to make her canvases. Blue words flow with the compositions surging out from her imaginary world to form poetry.

An impulse.
