Scar, new and old works by Chath Piersath


New and old works by Chath Piersath
Exhibition opening 6:30pm Wed, July 29, 2015

“‘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.”  (Dana Langlois)

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