Nguyen Thanh Truc has developed his new series with horizontal lines, full range of colors presented by layers after layers arbitrarily. These horizontal lines, representing many different parts of different contexts and perspectives, are distinctive and combine altogether to become a complete picture. Instead of portraying one singular event, Truc, vigorously and ambitiously, want to display a full and continuous story, to give the viewer his universe trajectory. Each line is a visually compressed impression and also a slice with no beginning or ending.
