This is a close up of the other Thanh Son picture. Nothing spooky that I've noticed in it so far. Instead it is perhaps a rather unappealing choice of subject - the dilapidated back streets, nay even slums of Hanoi - but the impressionistic rendering ameliorates that, and I find the colour combination of the yellows and blues very attractive, and something rather quirky about the lone television aerial.
Such was our indecision at the gallery about which picture to buy, we ended up buying both, and I am very pleased about that now, as they look well together, assisted in this strange marriage by being framed in the same gilded frames.
Slums and gilding, now that's juxtaposition.
