For nearly a month, Phnom Penh folks will have the chance to admire the beauty of Cambodian women, reflected from a collection of artworks in the latest exhibition in town.
At its opening at Bophana Centre on Saturday’s evening, “She’s Dressing Up” presents a number of paintings depicting elegant Khmer ladies, along with female customs which reveals a unique style that utilises traditional and modern designs. The exhibition is a collaboration between Chan Sophorn, an artist and lecturer at the Royal University of Fine Arts and Sambath Udom, a costume designer.
“She’s Dressing Up aims at describing the beauty of women and jewelry, with a mix of art, such as clothing, and paintings,” Sambath said. “But, there are many messages underneath those artworks, which will require sometime to understand.”
“We also want to showcase our creative work since it is a common message between the artists to come together regardless of their different skills,” Udom explained, adding that the exhibition will be open to the public until October 5th.
