The quiet half of the sky
Faces hidden in the working crowd, veiled by the duties of the seamstress, the labours of the rice field and the market, the endless tread of the city street. Through a range of styles, painter Dina Chhan explores the surface reality of the daily work of Cambodian women, and draws up unexpressed dreams and aspirations from the souls of these mothers, sisters and daughters.
Using her familiar vivid palette of colours, Dina hovers between a lithe, almost cinematic realism and an exuberant abstraction. She places people in noisy, bustling environments where you can hear the wind blowing, the calls and shouts, the traffic passing, or the night falling. All the while, the quiet dignity of the subjects creates a stillness of that captured moment. These nine strong pieces remind us of the people that we see, that we know, and that we are.

My paintings for a new album by Ketsa ‘Al Kemet’
02 January 2014
Each painting represents a track on the fabulous new album by Ketsa. Yes, I actually had headphones on in my studio as I painted each piece. It was great fun and I hope you like what I have produced. You can check out all my paintings here. Thomas over at Headphonaugh wrote a little review of my paintings. If you wish to purchase a painting please contact warren AT invisibleagent.com
And this is what Thomas thought of the new album “It brings me up, makes me smile and gives me that all important skip in my step“. Click here to read the full review of the music.
