LadyPenh.com continues as Phnom Penh WEEK

In internet ages LadyPenh.com started decades ago. It was somewhere in 2009 that a bunch of fellow PhnomPenhers got together. They had the feeling that our city is somewhat at crossroads: it's getting kind of tough to keep track of what's going on here . Phnom Penh was awakening... and a website like LadyPenh.com became a bare necessity!

Now has the time come to get ready for a change. A change for the better as LadyPenh.com will continue as www.PhnomPenhWEEK.com from September 1.

Consuming Passion is a unique collection of 18 recent paintings never shown before, with strong influence of green and blue colours, representing abstract vast horizons of nature. The exhibition is a message to all Cambodians to protect together the biggest heritage of the country: its wild life and nature.

Born in Kandal Province in 1969, Chhim Sothy started to draw in his early childhood and never stopped since. With an average of one painting per week, 4 per month, 25 a year, Sothy has already created almost 500 paintings over the past 20 years. Enthusiast about his art - almost bulimic - Sothy is a very spontaneous painter.

exhibition
"Scar" by Chat Piersath @ Java Café & Gallery
 
event pic

“‘Scar’ came about as the result of an impromptu residency with Chath Piersath. As we were going through older works at the gallery, he proposed to re-work them and add to their complexity or create new pieces entirely.

So, for two months he settled into one of the back rooms to do exactly that. Knowing that Chath is an articulate writer and poet I asked him to journal about his process during the residency. He is deeply honest about himself and his work.

Through the journals he offers an insight into his artistic process from the very practical challenge of finding decent paint in Phnom Penh to his philosophical struggle with nihilism.” (DL)

A selection of the new/old works together with his journals will be presented for the exhibition.
