About the Artist: Sopheap Pich (b. 1971) is recognized today as Cambodia's most internationally prominent contemporary artist. Born in Battambang, Cambodia, he moved with his family to the United States in 1984 and received his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 1999. In 2002, he returned to Phnom Penh, Cambodia, where he continues to be based. Pich is known for working with local materials such as bamboo, rattan, burlap from rice bags, beeswax, and earth pigments gathered from around Cambodia and for making sculptures that are inspired by bodily organs, vegetal forms, and abstract geometric structures. His childhood experiences during the genocidal conditions of late 1970's Cambodia have had a lasting impact on his work, informing its themes of time, memory, and the body.
