“Self Portrait”  Oil on canvas by Buu Truong.  Trying a looser and less representational style, I chose Modigliani as my inspiration for this self-portrait. 

 

Buu Truong, as a young child, came with her family to America from Vietnam and settled in Orlando where she grew up. She graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in Computer Engineering and worked as a computer programmer and manager for many years.  After a time, she became unhappy in her job and felt something important was missing in her life. She began painting to relieve stress and found her passion. She left her sixteen year old career in order to pursue a degree in the visual arts!

 


“Onward and Upward” by Buu Truong. Mixed media including pen and watercolor pencil.  

 

The title of this piece, “Onward and Upward”, refers to the idea that the stairs are a means to move forward. Buu says, “For this piece, I had two main goals – apply the design element of space and experiment with a new medium, watercolor pencils. The artwork was created using mixed media – pen and watercolor pencils. The design element of space is applied using one-point perspective across multiple planes. The steps, which are parallel to the ground plane, converge towards a single vanishing point on the horizon line. However, the rails, which are parallel to the incline of the stairs, converge towards another vanishing point above the original horizon line”.

 

“Trees for Farmlands” by Buu Truong.  Woodcut print on paper with gouache

 

Buu explains, “This piece is about cause and effect of deforestation. One of the main causes for destroying forests is clearing the land for farmlands. The campfire represents the manmade destruction.  This is one out of an edition of 10 woodcut prints”.  

 

 

 

 

Buu is presently enrolled at Florida Atlantic University working toward a Bachelor of Fine Arts with a concentration in painting. Buu is obsessed with increasing her technical skills and accuracy when it comes to exploring form, texture, color and light. Her work has been exhibited at the South Side Cultural Arts Center in Fort Lauderdale, Southwest Florida International Airport in Fort Myers, Alliance for the Arts in Fort Myers and the Coral Springs Museum of Art. She has been awarded a Wellington Art Society Scholarship and a Rothenberger Scholarship.

 

 

“Path To Art” by Buu Trong.  Gouache on Paper

Buu shares, “There are many parallels between running and art-making. Through the training and discipline required to run, I realized that anything can be learned. From this point, my world grew and eventually led me on my art path”.  She tells The Rickie Report, “This exhibit explores my journey in becoming an artist, from before I even knew I wanted to be an artist, until now”.

 

The Wellington Art Society is a non-profit charitable organization beginning its 37th year. It is open to artists of all mediums and patrons of the arts, allowing both local and regional artists to display their art work in local galleries, interact with other artists and serve the community through their art.

“Wildfire” by Joseph Marcou

Joseph Marcou was born and raised in Brooklyn, NY. His mother was a teacher and a talented artist, so art was always a part of his life. He began drawing and making things at an early age. His parents died young and at 16 he moved to Mexico with his uncle who was a comptroller of a U.S. Commission. One night while at a concert he sketched the pianist. He showed it to his uncle’s friend, the artist Enrique Asunsolo, who realized his talent and suggested that Joe make art his career. This was his defining moment.

“Red Poppy” by Joseph Marcou

Throughout his long design career, Joe continued fine art painting for himself. When he finally retired from the corporate world , he was able to turn to the sheer enjoyment of creating art full time. He is particularly well known for his extraordinary floral paintings, capturing their essence with drama and unusual style. His paintings are in many private national and international collections. He has been represented by the Farnsworth Gallery and exhibits his work in many outdoor art fairs.  Joe says he is inspired by the resilience of nature and what its limitless imagination and whimsy creates.
