Just outside of Milan, in Lissone, AMSTE arte contemporanea gallery presents Flat Land, an exhibition of paintings by Vietnamese-born American artist Tomas Vu. The exhibition includes eight paintings from Vu’s Flat Land series. The works, made from layered silk screens, collaged wood veneer, and ink wash, portray a catastrophic battle between man, nature and machine. Like the Nadia Hironaka and Matthew Suib video projection at the Icebox in Philadelphia, this work also evokes Hieronymus Bosch’s Garden of Earthly Delights, ultimately depicting a beautiful, yet damning post-apocalyptic vision of a dystopic world.
Pictured are paintings from the exhibition.
