In his recent works Hong depicts Ha Long Bay, with his works emanating a calm and serene quality that is ironic to its legendary origin. 'Ha Long' is directly translated as 'Bay of descending Dragons'. According to ancient belief, in an attempt to save the Vietnamese people from foreign invasion, these dragons spewed pearls that formed the scattered limestone structures of today. Instead of the chaos that constitutes this ancient belief, in this work the artist uses a monochromatic colour palette to convey a palpable sense of tranquility and stillness. Hong uses simplicity to present the very essence of his works to the viewers, simple yet stunning.
