Born in Battambang in 1971,lives and works in Phnom Penh, Sopheap Pich completed MFA in painting from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1999. Sopheap is an internationally acclaimed artist whose major exhibitions include a solo show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York in 2013 and the 57th Venice Biennale international exhibition "VIVA ARTE VIVA" in 2017.
This work was created by dipping one side of a piece of bamboo scrap wood in ink and pressing it repeatedly onto paper. The ink is made primarily from iron oxide, a material that, along with bamboo, is found in nature and readily available to all. It is perhaps the most distant plane from conventional painting, in which a specially trained artist offers a particular image. Because it is natural, immediate, and explicit in its production technique, the painting achieves an extreme openness and rhythm.It offers us the opportunity to reactivate a profoundly simple visual pleasure.
