Specializing in Thai & Asian Contemporary Art

Cambodian-born Sopheap Pich has established a remarkable international career since first showing in Bangkok in 2007, and this new series of grids introduces a maturity in the artist’s practice, an achievement of profound affects and resonances from material substances.

Found materials, painted and stitched surfaces and organic forms have previously shaped poignant sensibilities and hinted at dark histories. Pich’s practice has developed through an engagement with gridded structures within a layered relationship to art historical formalism and the symbolism of regimentation, concealment and instability. Now Pich heightens a more abstracted quality which is rooted in an all-encompassing view of our environment; from the rudimentary aspects of the built environment, such as the humble brick, to suggestions of growth and both the haptic and visceral experience of the natural world.
