Exhibition Art Work
by Khun Sovanrith and Venn Savat
Opening reception, July
exhibition consists of 23 modern oil paintings which were
created by Mr. Khun Sovanrith and Mr. Venn Savat. Each
painting depicts different images, and coveys different
messages. For some paintings, viewers can grasp their
meanings at once. However, some other paintings require the
viewers to spend some time thinking about them in order to
understand the paintings, and others even need the
explanation from the artists themselves.
The main objective of this exhibition is to support and
encourage the artists especially the painters in Cambodia to
continue their work, and it is also intended to publicize
paintings for national and international audience.
