Exhibition

Fast Cars and Dangerous Women

Exhibiting Artists: Hein Thit, Maw Thu Da Nu

Venue: Utterly Art 20B Mosque Street > venue details

Dates: 11 Jul 2013 - 21 Jul 2013

Myanmese artists Hein Thit and Maw Thu Da Nu have opposing styles but their subjects represent the fetishistic epitome of male desire. Hein Thit’s abstracted female nudes with a background collage of Myanmese comics contrasts expressively with the younger Maw Thu Da Nu’s shiny hard-edged hyperrealism.

In Hein Thit’s female nudes with collage, the purpose of the drawing is less to imitate reality than to express the beauty contained within. Hein Thit approaches the internal rather than external beauty of women with line drawing in a simple and most effective way. He adds emotional brushstrokes in black acrylic upon old Myanmese comics in mathematical combinations. The collage and distortion of anatomy are meant to emphasize his formal ideas, with compositions that are based on realism yet abstract.

Maw Thu Du Nu chooses to compose his works through the reflection of glass and mirrors so as to literally ‘reflect’ upon the social, political and economic development in his country. The modern store window display and the growing population of luxury cars in Yangon, are no mere evidence of the growing wealth in Myanmar. In the eyes of Du Nu, they serve as his medium from which he expresses his concern about the impact of capitalism and consumerism on his beloved country.
