Catalogue Note

Red Moon was part of Dang Xuan Hoa's inaugural one man show in London in 2008, where he exhibited portraits of himself and the most important people in his life: his wife, their children and grandchildren. Red Moon's composition is typically characteristic of this momentous time, with the figures placed in the corner of the canvas instead of dominating the picture plane. Echoing the rise of the moon, it is a remembrance of the positive energy that surrounded the artist at the time: the notion and promise that he was moving towards a lucky phase in his life.
