The Khmer artist, alumna of two French schools of fine arts, will exhibit several pieces from her newest artwork, and address the numerous former students and trainees invited to the annual Gala Dinner offered by the CCIFC (French Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Cambodia) in the gardens of Phnom Penh French Embassy.
Yim Maline (1982, Battambang) is a graduate of the School of Fine Arts in Caen, France, after studying with the well-known Phare Ponleu Selpak in Battambang. She has been invited to artist residencies in South Africa, New York, and recently in Japan. Her artwork was exhibited in Paris, Singapore, Toronto, New York, Phnom Penh, and at For Arts'Sake Gallery (Anicca Foundation) in Siem Reap.
Maline's creative work reflects her ongoing concern for the poor state of our planet. Deforestation, human-induced climate change, "scorched earth" policies bring us on the brink of "de-composition", to quote from her latest exhibitiion title. Her compositions on recycled cardboard or canvas have a definitively telluric resonance, enhanced by delicate golden touches and Indian ink lines.
Friday 7 Dec., 2018, from 6 pm. Gardens of the French Embassy. With reservation only.
Part of the sales proceeds will go to Anicca Foundation, in order to promote contemporary and emerging artists in Cambodia.
