Open Studio Cambodia and TRIBE Cambodia Art Gallery present the debut solo exhibition of Morn Chear in Siem Reap, Cambodia. This unique body of work is created entirely in relief lino-cut block print, a technique rarely seen in Cambodia. Drawn free-hand and then meticulously chiseled, Morn’s images playfully depict everyday scenes from his personal life: his wife washes the laundry by hand, a dog takes a nap in the alley, fish grill on a small barbecue, he rides his motorbike into the distance. Morn’s work celebrates the small moments of joy, tenderness, affection in the mundane musings of everyday life, creating small celebrations of “the space between.”
Morn was born in Kampot Province in 1988 in a small, subsistence rice farming village. As a young man he lost both of his arms in an electric shock accident on a construction site. Now, ten years later, Morn is a successful, multitalented visual and performing artist. He is an accomplished contemporary dancer, singer and visual artist proficient in illustration, painting, drawing, and printmaking. He currently resides in Kampot city with his wife and is pursuing his art career through Open Studio Cambodia.
